Funny, poignant, inspiring story

March 16, 2018
Watching the journey of Augie and Lynne Nieto from 'masters of the universe' to caring activists is unique and touching. Nieto founded LifeFitness, drove his Ferrari, worked too much, partied and made money until his ALS diagnosis 13 years ago. It's beautiful to watch Augie and his incredible wife, Lynne as they comprehend the news - from devastation to humility and vulnerability, and then hope and determination to live and fund the development of a drug. Filmmaker James Keach performs a miracle (ANOTHER miracle, after Glen Campbell... I'll Be Me) in making a movie that includes Augie's perspective using green-screen techniques and tons of humor. Makes you appreciate all you have and examine the priorities you choose... Loved this film .
