On February 2019, Vincent Nicolai, a beloved charity fundraiser and friend to many in the New York motorcycle community, was involved in a catastrophic propane explosion. As Vincent single-handedly rushed to put out the fire in his garage, flames burned over 40% of his body. It nearly took his life. This film is about the power of community in the face of hardship.
