A Wheelchair Basketball Documentary

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.
The Rebound follows the lives of three athletes with disabilities on and off the court as they work with unwavering resolve towards athletic, educational and career ambitions.
This real account of the Heat Wheels' quest to push their way through the season--often unsure if they'll have what it takes to make it to the next step--challenges the way disability is widely perceived.
Friends, family, and pride hang in the balance as these men find an extraordinary gift in the hand life has dealt.
With each victory, the team gets closer to the idea that anything - even a shot at the national championship title - is possible.
