AN INSPIRING DOCUMENTARY FOLLOWING THE AUSTRALIAN INVICTUS GAMES WHEELCHAIR RUGBY TEAM

This deeply moving one-hour documentary goes behind-the-scenes of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 to follow the formation of the Australian Defence Force wheelchair rugby team as they struggle to reclaim their lives on and off the court, and strive to wear the green and gold at the Games.

Once again, these wounded warriors will put their bodies on the line in service of their country. Only this time, the battlefield is a stadium court, their armour of choice is a combat wheelchair and their adversaries are amongst the most inspirational Service men and women in the world.

This story begins on day one of selections, 25 serving personnel and veterans from all over Australia gather in Sydney to stake their claim for one of 11 Australian jersey’s up for grabs in the Wheeling Diggers’ wheelchair rugby team. The selection criteria are unlike any other sporting event, competitors are selected not just on performance but how the experience will benefit their ongoing recovery and rehabilitation.
