On April 1st, 2013, Gabriel Cordell will begin pushing himself into history, rolling his wheelchair from Pacific Ocean(Santa Monica, CA) to the Atlantic Ocean(Jones Beach) with final destination being West Hempstead, New York arriving He needs your help to get rolling.
Cameras will be following this adventure, and the ensuing documentary will be a film about one man pushing his physical, mental, and emotional boundaries to the extreme limits, as he becomes the first person to manually cross this country in a wheelchair in 75 days. To prepare for the upcoming challenges, he has been training at the local track, the burbank hills and the Burbank Community YMCA, the place Gabe has deemed “his safehaven.”
On back roads and through forgotten towns, this documentary will follow Gabriel on the most important journey of his life. One that has seen him through paralysis, recovery from sexual and drug addictions, and on through his ultimate desire to prove that with will, determination, and a bit of work no one has to be constrained by their past and held to circumstances. Gabe will talk to people along the way who come to roll, walk, ride, sit or drive next to him and share his inspiration. All people are welcome!
