Description
First he played a superhero, then he became one -- this era's most inspirational true story shows the courage and dignity of the actor known as Superman

The world swooned when unknown actor Christopher Reeve flew across the screen as Superman, the Man of Steel. Clad in a trademark cape and tights, he captivated millions and became an overnight sensation as the model of "truth, justice, and the American way". Unlike many young stars, Christopher Reeve never abused his fame or slipped onto the fast track. He turned down lucrative offers from Hollywood to act on Broadway, volunteered on behalf of children and freedom of speech, and raised a family with his wife, fellow actor Dana Morosoni.

The world watched in horror when tragedy struck the Man of Steel, who was thrown from his horse and paralyzed during a riding competition. Faced with death, told he might never breathe without a ventilator again, let alone walk, Reeve chose to live, to raise his family, to direct, and to fight for better care and a cure for the thousands like him. This moving tribute to one man's courage and dignity proves that Christopher Reeve doesn't have to fly to be a superhero.
