The inspiring true story of Jeff Bauman, an ordinary man who captured the hearts of his city - and the world - to become the symbol of hope following the infamous 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff, a 27-year-old, working-class Boston man who was at the marathon to try and win back his ex-girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany, TV's "Orphan Black").Waiting for her at the finish line when the blast occurs, he loses both his legs in the attack. After regaining consciousness in the hospital, Jeff is able to help law enforcement identify one of the bombers... but his own personal battle has just begun. He tackles months of physical and emotional rehabilitation with the unwavering support of Erin and his family. It is Jeff’s deeply personal account of the heroic journey that tests a family’s bond, defines a community’s pride and inspires his inner courage to overcome devastating adversity. Brought to the screen by acclaimed filmmaker David Gordon Green, STRONGER is the inspirational real-life story of the man who became the living embodiment of “Boston Strong.”
