It was a freak accident that defies explanation: Curious about a dead bear deep in the woods that happened to be resting atop a live electrical wire, Eduardo Garcia sent 2,400 volts coursing through his body, leaving him without an arm, multiple ribs, and a whole swath of muscle mass. Where others would be devastated by these events, Garcia—an adventurous spirit and well-regarded chef—saw recovery as an opportunity to reaffirm his zest for life in this inspiring doc from Phillip Baribeau (Unbranded, MFF2015).
