Winner of the 2016 Kaiser Permanente Thrive Award at Cinequest, The Rebound portrays the power and magnificence of the human spirit and reveals just how much we all can achieve.
Miami is a city known for its sports and diversity. For the Miami Heat Wheels, it is a city of opportunity, second chances, and a call to win—against all odds. Two years in the making, Shaina Allen's directorial debut dives deeply inside the lives of adaptive athletes while following the Miami Heat Wheels on their quest to rise to the top ranks of the league. Friends, family, and pride hang in the balance as these men find an extraordinary gift in the hand life has dealt. They hope for an education, a big break, and a new life. The Rebound reveals the inspiring, although at times heartbreaking, portrait of the struggle that adaptive athletes face to realize their dreams while adjusting to overcome their biggest challenges. Here is a groundbreaking story that explores what it's like dealing with trauma, living with mixed abilities, hustling for opportunities, and experiencing The Rebound.
