What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?

- Henry David Thoreau


This film moved me in more ways than one.

It made me reflect on my own relationship with my father and it motivated me to drag my able-bodied ass up off the couch.

He grew up feeling left out, unable to tag along with his father and brothers on their epic outdoor adventures like hiking Utah’s King’s Peak mountain. After numerous surgeries, he finally made the decision to go through with a double-amputation procedure in 2015, which meant he had to completely relearn mobility. Using state-of-the-art walking prosthetics Fillaur Running Blades, Sid is now able to not only walk, but also to tackle challenges like summiting the tallest mountain in the state of Utah.
