Holmes’ tragic incident occurred during a planned stunt that went awry, resulting in a debilitating spinal injury. The documentary paints a vivid picture of his life post-accident, incorporating a decade’s worth of personal footage, behind-the-scenes glimpses from Holmes’ stunt work, and intimate interviews with him, Radcliffe, family, friends, and former crew members.

Through these powerful narratives, the film resonates with universal themes of resilience, growth, and the unbreakable ties that unite people facing challenges.

Behind the scenes, the production is in capable hands. Simon Chinn and Jonathan Chinn’s Lightbox, along with Holmes and Amy Stares’ Ripple Productions, are spearheading the project.

The documentary, set to air next month, not only sheds light on Holmes’ remarkable journey but also highlights the enduring friendship between Holmes and Radcliffe, showcasing the strength found in adversity.
