A boy who died and came back to life reveals what survival means to him

Chris Dean’s heart stopped when he was two. He died but he came back. When he was five, his father was murdered, his body riddled with more than 20 bullets in a gang shootout. As I Am floats through this remarkable young man’s landscape, revealing the lives that have shaped his outlook. Ultimately, Chris’s trenchant perspective on all that he sees moves from the bleakness of poverty and pain to a powerful vision of survival and a reason for being in this world.

Director: Alan Spearman

Producers: Alan Spearman, Mark Adams, Chris Dean, The Commercial Appeal
