Featuring extensive filming of Gabby and her husband, astronaut-turned-Senator Mark Kelly; interviews with Barack Obama and other friends and colleagues; and exclusive access to stunning videos taken in the weeks following her near-death experience, the film is the story of a woman transformed by an act of violence, and a close-up portrait of the marriage that sustains her.
