Byer, despite the lousy hand fate dealt him, wasn't much about gloom.

Byer's sincerity is the grounding force in a film that serves as a wrenching reminder that the answers to our most essential questions must come from within.

This documentary by playwright Ben Byer, who succumbed in July at after living six years with ALS, isn't about dying as much as finding purpose in an impossible challenge and giving comfort to fellow sufferers.

... a stirring narrative, a movie of epic dramatic force that holds its own with the best of any major work of cinema.

The result is something that is, though not necessarily unique in the annals of documentary history, as engaging as any such story can be, particularly when isolated and presented as sincerely as it is here.
