Film synopsis:

Days before a dream football trial at Arsenal, 18-year-old Oxford United star Jamie Brooks was struck down by a rare, life-threatening nerve disease. Paralysed and in agony, he spent 79 days on a life-support machine. He feared he may never walk again. BOUNCING BACK charts Jamie’s long recovery as he attempts to reignite his footballing career.
