9000 needles - a story of stroke recovery

9000 needles – a story of stroke recovery !

Forty years old, champion body builder, successful businessman, loving husband and a father of three. Living the ideal  ‘ American Dream’.

That is, until Devin Dearth suffers a devastating stroke. Caused by a bleed in the brain stem, the stroke leaves him paralyzed on his right side and unable to walk, with difficulty speaking, double vision and inability to care for himself or his family. He has met his ultimate adversary: the limits of his own mortality.

The movie follows Devin on this unconventional journey, during which his courage, faith, patience and desire to overcome are tested on a daily basis. The trials he and his family endure along the way remind us that the human spirit can transcend any boundaries while exploring a universal community of healing and transformation.
