When professional mountain biker Paul Basagoitia suffers a devastating spinal cord injury (SCI), his life is changed in an instant. Discovering that he’s become paralyzed, Paul begins a grueling battle against his own 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 journey and uncertain future. A chorus of other diverse SCI survivors weaves through the film, shining light on the struggled that Paul now faced. After years of relentless hard work, intense physical therapy, and even controversial stem cell treatments, Paul slowly beings to build a new life for himself. Any One Of Us shows how lives can change forever in the blink of an eye – and the resilience, grit, and determination it takes to stay open to life’s possibilities, even under the most trying of circumstances.
All proceeds from Any One Of Us will be donated to the Wings For Life Foundation. Wings for Life is a non-profit charity with a mission to find a cure for spinal cord injury. 100% of all donations fund life-changing spinal cord research. Any One Of Us will be premiering at the 2019 South by Southwest Film Festival.
