Through the inspiring journey of a recovering athlete, Any One of Us offers an unprecedented glimpse into the world of spinal cord injuries.
When professional mountain biker Paul Basagoitia suffers a devastating spinal cord injury, his life is changed in an instant. Discovering that he's become paralyzed, Paul begins a grueling battle against body and mind in the hope of one day being able to walk again. His excruciating recovery unfolds in real time through raw, intimate footage— much of which was filmed by Paul himself—as we see him fight through the agonies of an unpredictable and uncertain journey. A chorus of other SCI survivors weaves through the film, shining light on the struggles that Paul now faces. After years of relentless hard work, intense physical therapy, and even controversial stem cell treatment, Paul slowly begins to build a new life for himself. Any One of Us shows the ways in which our lives can change forever in the blink of an eye— and the resilience, grit, and determination it takes to remain wholly ourselves.
