Storyline

Based on the real story of Tom and Nicola Ray from Rutland. Their perfect life is totally ruined in a single moment after Tom had developed sepsis. While her husband was in coma, Nicola gave birth to their second child on the other side of the same hospital. Within a matter of days, sepsis would rob Tom of both his arms and legs, and left his face severely disfigured. As an ordinary man, Tom never put himself at risk -- he just woke up two months later in a nightmare, a face-off quadruple amputee. This incredible story of survival shows what can be overcome when love is unconditional. Written by MAthePA

Trivia

When the film was shown for a potential South Korean audience an audience member was visibly shocked when Nic Ray (Joanne Froggatt) cursed and threw a phone. Director Bill Clark felt that this was proof that the localisation in the subtitles was effective, but was later told that the shock was that in South Korea you simply would not hang up the phone on one's mother in law.

I googled it before i watched and whilst horrifically sad this film was just sad and angry. Bless him snd his family. A tragic accident and i personally would not have survived as well, but i wasn't left inspired. Sorry 😁
