Doctors said that he wouldn’t live to see his 25th birthday and that he would never make music again.

Twenty-two years later, Jason is still alive. Unable to move or speak, he continues to make music with his eyes, refusing to give up on his dream of becoming a musician despite the terrible hand that life has dealt him.

Made with the full co-operation of Jason and the Becker family, Jesse Vile’s inspirational documentary draws on a vast archive of never-before-seen photos and footage to celebrate Jason’s extraordinary life and the enduring strength of the human spirit despite the most incredible odds.
