At the age of 34, former NFL star Steve Gleason was diagnosed with ALS and given a life expectancy of two to five years. Weeks later, he learns that his wife, Michel, is pregnant with their first child.

Determined to live his remaining years to its fullest, Steve goes on an expedition to Alaska, creates a foundation to help other ALS patients, repairs a rocky relationship with his father and embraces new technologies to help compensate for his deteriorating physical abilities — all with Michel’s unwavering support. 

Through intimate, heart-breaking and often humorous video-diaries, Gleason follows one family as they confront their new reality.
