A veteran stuntman sets out to complete the jump that bested his idol Evel Knievel: clearing the Snake River Canyon in a rocket-powered craft.
About The Film

In 1974, Evel Knievel attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon in a rocket-powered craft—but failed to clear it when a parachute deployed too soon. Forty years later, veteran stuntman Eddie Braun attempts to successfully recreate the launch of his boyhood idol with the help of Scott Truax, whose father constructed Knievel’s original rocket. Braun calls upon the expertise and connections he’s earned over three decades in the industry while Truax seeks to prove that his father’s design will hold.

Director Kurt Mattila provides incredible access and dynamic visuals, blending a rich history of the stunt profession with the visceral imagery of a man in flight. At the heart of it all lies Braun’s curiously contradictory, but co-existing, traits: levelheaded family man and fearless stunt crusader.
