This film from Megan Smith-Harris brings together seven burn survivors to recount the stories of the events that changed their lives, and the ways they coped with such events to become stronger than before. Featuring Iraq war veteran, Dancing with the Stars contestant and acclaimed motivational speaker JR Martinez, the film celebrates the strength of the human spirit and its ability to overcome incredible physical and emotional duress, as each survivor shares how they emerged from the darkest days of their lives with stronger senses of purpose, forged not only by their ordeal, but by their own indomitable courage.
