“People like Shane aren’t afraid of death. They’re afraid of not living fully.” Why would someone who had everything—fame, a loving partner, a child—risk it all for a sport? McConkey struggles to find the answer.
Through Shane’s home videos, sports footage and interviews with those who knew Shane best, this documentary attempts to reveal the true nature of a man known best for his dare-devil approach to life. While many of Shane’s amazing stunts are featured, the filmmaker is interested in discovering his spirit and in exploring the limitless drive that spurred him on.
