Storming is an earnest narration of hope in the face of tragedy and injustice chronicling a family’s fight against traumatic brain injury.
In Storming , we will follow the daily lives and challenges of the Diviney family 9 years following a tragic attack which left their son Ryan nearly comatose with a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). The documentary offers an intimate view into Ryan’s physical care provided by his father Ken and the often frustrating world of insurance claims and finances navigated by his mother Sue, as they sacrifice the life they once knew in a fighting attempt to keep both Ryan and his story alive.
The film will explore the ambiguity of “life” for those suffering from an extreme TBI along with the complex dialogue and often controversial decision-making required of those who love them.
With supporting narratives from family, medical experts, friends, and others, the audience will follow the Divineys' tenacious fight to maintain Ryan's health as the clock ticks toward an unlikely recovery while his attackers live free. After nearly 10 years of fulfilling a promise to their son, they struggle to answer the ultimate question: Have they done all they can?
