Christopher Reeve, after becoming Superman was at the top of his career, a career that would have gone even far if he hadn’t met with a tragic horse riding accident back in 1995. A man who would never stay still— traveling, flying airplanes, horse riding, the larger-than-life human being was confined, trapped in his own body due to paralysis resulting from a spinal injury.

Despite it, the actor went on to become a disability activist, whose legacy continues to inspire and give hope to people from all walks of life. Based on his meteoric rise to fame to his death at the age of 52 from Cardiac arrest, Super/Man: The Christopher Reeve Story offers a rare insight into his life.
