Stronger
Stronger is the inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city and the world to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. He entered the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend. He was waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurred, and lost both his legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in the hospital, he was able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers, but his own battle has just begun. He underwent months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of his girlfriend and family.
