The story of Aaron Baker is truly remarkable. After being completely paralyzed by breaking his neck on a motocross track, neurosurgeons said he only had million-to-one odds of being able to feed himself again. Over 15 years, Aaron struggled and persevered to accomplish the goal medical professionals told him he would never be able to do again. This documentary focuses on Aaron’s journey to regain movement, and on a much larger scale, it is a film about overcoming tremendous odds to achieve a dream.
What is Coming to my Senses?
Many people probably do not even think about the intricacies that go into the most basic bodily movements. It seems like nothing to life a piece of food to your mouth and chew, but over 30 million people in the United States struggle with mobility to some extent and many of those individuals are unable to even walk as a result of a spinal cord injury (SCI). The goal of this movie is to expose the hardships associated with SCIs and offer a message of hope to all those who struggle in some capacity.

The film itself will follow Aaron Baker’s 15 year journey in recovering his ability to walk, including the final culmination of his dedication: walking 20 miles across Death Valley. However, this documentary is more than just about a single man’s physical transformation to being able to walk again. It also explores the mental anguish Aaron went through, including bouts of depression. It is the goal of the filmmakers to explore every aspect of Aaron’s journey so that others may learn from his example.
