From being considered the greatest guitar hero of his era to barely being able to move, this is the extraordinary story of Jason Becker, a musical prodigy who has spent more than two decades battling with ALS. The terminal disease took Jason by surprise as his world recognition was on the rise, rendering him completely paralyzed. Using an eye communication system invented by his father, Jason is able to release the music that is trapped inside his mind.
