"The Miracle Man"

Tweetable Logline:

When a self-made salesman suffers paralyzing injuries in a plane crash, he must use all his motivational skills to achieve a full recovery.

Elevator Pitch:

As seen in the inspirational documentary smash “The Secret,” Morris Goodman was a successful insurance salesman who crashed an airplane, crushing his spine, leaving him unable to walk, talk, swallow, breathe or move. His doctors believed he would live a short, meaningless life, if he survives at all.

But Morris had different plans...

Using the same motivational skills he used to succeed in business, Morris calculates the steps he needed to make toward recovery. He sets a goal to walk on his own two feet and be home by Christmas, facing extreme physical, mental, and emotional challenges along the way.

Production team:
Writer/Director/Producer: Brian Jude (Producer, ""The Blood Shed" and "Under the Raven's Wing")
Producers: Isen Robbins and Aimee Schoof ("Brother to Brother," "XX/XY" and "Missing in America")

About the production:

"At a time in which I was feeling rather down, while at the same time (soul) searching for inspiration for a new project, my wife suggested I watch 'The Secret' - the documentary sensation promoted by Oprah Winfrey based on the Law of Attraction. I was amazed to hear Morris Goodman tell his story, and was yearning to find out more. At the same time, I couldn't believe it hadn't been a feature film before! I decided it needed to be. I met with Morris, got his permission to make the film, and the rest, I hope, shall become history!" -- Brian Jude

Current status:

Pre-production; casting.
