What becomes of a country lad who loves daredevil adventure, only to discover that he is losing his sight? What courage does it take for him to pursue his dream of becoming an elite athlete representing Australia? Kieran Modra's inspiring story tells us about a shy country boy in a city boarding school, an adolescent struggling with his identity as he comes to terms with a disability, and the Australian athlete standing atop a dais as he accepts his gold medal.
