Always a fire

After a car crash, an American football player fights to get back in the game

Chad Jones was a star athlete at Louisiana State University, drafted after college by the New York Giants American football team as well as the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. But when a tragic car accident tore apart his leg, and nearly cost him his life, few expected Chad to return to the playing field. Always a Fire follows Chad’s amazing recovery, interweaving intimate interviews with close family members together with footage of his gruelling physical therapy. An emotional record of determination, focus and positive attitude, the film shows the lengths to which Chad will go in order to return to the sport he loves.
