Synopsis: No parent should have to bury their child, but that was the reality the Weil’s faced when their son Gabe was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Told he would not live past 25, Gabe made it his life goal to earn a college degree. During his senior year of college, he received a new diagnosis, doubling his life expectancy overnight. This unforeseen scenario, though remarkable, presented Gabe with a complicated obstacle- creating a future for which he had never planned, in a world that often forgets he exists.
“Gabe” speaks to the universal themes of acceptance and perseverance. The film challenges us to live with renewed purpose and reminds us that, despite our differences, we are all connected through our shared humanity.
