A documentary exploring what it means for people facing barriers to follow their passions just released a final trailer.

Last summer, Ethan Krueger and Tanelle Bolt, both athletes with disabilities left Revelstoke, aiming to get to Nelson in ten days.

The film What If aims to inspire those dreaming of connecting or reconnecting with the outdoors, even with a wheelchair.

According to the movie’s description, “What if, you had tried to beat that red light? What if, you skied that line? What if, you hit that jump? There is a fine line between falling, then getting back up and falling, then never walking again. Explore what it means to those who face barriers to integrate back into their passions and how life can change in the blink of an eye.”

The movie is scheduled to be released later this year.
