“Reach” is a film that takes you from the wards of the Children’s Hospital, right out into the heart of the Peak District. Filmed over four years, “Reach” tells the story of Clare, a climber from Sheffield, U.K., who suffered a life-altering stroke at 13 which left her unable to move anything but her left eye.

The first word that she spelled out with her eye was walk. Soon, she was determined to go climbing.
