Movie Info

An inspiring love story between television superstar, Andy Whitfield, of Starz's "Spartacus" fame and his charismatic wife, who together take on the most heroic role he's ever had to play. They generously trusted Oscar (R) Nominated filmmaker Lilibet Foster to follow them on their quest to heal Andy from a cancer diagnosis, in the hopes that by sharing their journey, they may help to inspire others with challenges and dreams. And, it's their courage, humor and love that reminds the audience that the journey is more important than the destination. Funded by the third most successful documentary campaign on Kickstarter, the filmmakers, producer, Sam Maydew, who brought everyone together, and director Lilibet Foster, are releasing the film through Be Here Now Productions with Tugg, beginning in U.S. theaters on April 8th.
