2012 JURY PRIZE SELECTION
TUESDAY, JUNE 26 - 7:45 PM
Join us for the Midwest premiere of a genre defining film about a young gay man whose spirit and drive prevents him from accepting his new life as a paraplegic.
MORGAN joins the life of Morgan Oliver when he returns to the home and life that he left as a walking man, before an accident in a bike race leaves him a paraplegic. Although his well‐meaning mom and his best friend try to convince him that everything is great, Morgan exiles himself from the outside world that only serves to remind him of a life he can no longer lead.
A chance encounter on a basketball court with Dean Kagen, a sensitive and awkward ex‐inmate, inspires Morgan to enter the wheelchair division of the race in which he wrecked. As Dean helps Morgan train, a romance blossoms between them.
But when Dean comes home to find Morgan collapsed on the bathroom floor after a hard day of training, he realizes that Morgan's true demon is his addiction to the win. MORGAN is pushed to the brink, teetering between what he wants and what he needs.
"An inspiring story of redemption and finding one's way after all seems lost…a powerful story of perseverance, determination and, of course, love."
