Charismatic and mischievous by nature, Aaron Baker was always drawn to the exhilaration of visceral physical activity. He was riding motorbikes at age three and was motocross-racing professionally in his teens. In 1999 an accident left Aaron paralyzed from the neck down. It was meant to bring his adventures to an end—instead, they had only just begun.
Drawing upon lively interviews with family, friends and associates, and featuring spectacular sports imagery, Coming to My Senses chronicles Aaron’s story from his rambunctious childhood to his startling recovery, culminating in his 20-mile journey across Death Valley—on foot. This inspiring documentary reminds us that life’s catastrophes are there to challenge us. And odds are there to be beaten.
