More Details

CRUX shows how one man overcame a tragic accident to reach new heights. Bringing to the screen a stirring story of triumph over adversity. Imagine being at the top of your sport as an international champion, and then having it all taken away in a terrible accident. This happened to Hong Kong champion rockclimber Lai Chi-wai, whose career was cruelly cut short when he was paralysed in a car crash in 2011.

It left Lai in a wheelchair but he would not let the injury defeat him. In 2016, for the fifth anniversary of the fateful accident, he planned to climb Hong Kong’s famous Lion Rock in his wheelchair.

CRUX tells the story of this amazing feat, where Lai summoned all the strength and courage that made him a world-class climber. Hear interviews with the people that know him best – his friends, family and fellow climbers, and the doctors who helped him on the way back from tragedy.
