FILM SYNOPSIS


ROLL WITH ME
Documentary Film

Director Lisa France and subject Gabriel Cordell

After hitting rock-bottom, a newly sober paraplegic (Gabriel Cordell) attempts to save his gangbanger nephew’s life by bringing him along on a 3,100-mile wheelchair trek across the United States. Their support crew is a band of unlikely co-conspirators from very different backgrounds, each dealing with their own issues — PTSD, homelessness, unemployment, family estrangement and sobriety struggles. As they roll through roadside towns across America, it becomes clear that they're not the only ones enduring tough times. What starts out as a challenge to push an unmodified wheelchair from California to New York, morphs into a transcendent journey that touches everyone along the way. In an age divided, ROLL WITH ME ignites our common humanity and urges us to find our inner hero or heroine.
