An athlete lost his leg in an accident. Now, he’s one of sport’s most inspirational figures.

Filmmaker Peter Montgomery tells the story of Manuel de los Santos, one of sport’s most inspirational figures.

Growing up in the Dominican Republic, Manuel played baseball from a young age and by 2003 was planning to turn professional. But a motorcycle accident changed his life forever when he lost his left leg above the knee.

Following this accident, he moved to France and on seeing the film, “The Legend of Bagger Vance,” he was inspired to take up golf. Now 26-years-old, Manuel lives in Paris and plays to a handicap of just three, competing in high-profile tournaments all around the world.

His extraordinary golf swing has become instantly recognizable.

Peter read about Manuel and had the idea of making a film about him. This short documentary portrait is the result.
