The film, 2 years in the making, provides an insider's perspective of the sport, following the Miami Heat Wheels on their underdog quest to rise to the top ranks of the league. “The Rebound” reveals the inspiring, although at times tragic, portrait of the struggle that adaptive athletes face to realize their dreams while adapting to overcome their biggest challenges. While learning to live with their (dis)abilities, these athletes manage to find hope and work tirelessly to create life changing opportunities for themselves through the sport.
The players featured in the story are beyond charismatic. While both hungry and passionate about the game, they must battle daily with their own internal struggles as well as the inequalities of an able-bodied world. Ultimately they all must find a way to focus on what they can do, rather than what they cannot. They do this through the sport. Wheelchair basketball provides life-changing opportunities, but is often cast aside as just another cause or charity. This film shows not only the action, but the impact of wheelchair basketball beyond the court.
Director Shaina Koren and Producer Mike Esposito remarked, “We first discovered the sport in mid 2012 when we met the coach of the Miami Heat Wheels. After meeting the players and witnessing the sport in action, our curiosity took control and we began filming to uncover a deeper story. Two years later, we are fully immersed in the wheelchair basketball community and have dedicated 23 months (and counting) to capturing this unique story.”
