Steve James, visionary non-fiction director of HOOP DREAMS, creates a portrait of the influential Chicago Sun Times film critic Roger Ebert.

The film focuses on Ebert's very public, very valiant struggle with cancer as a catalyst to examine his career accomplishments.

Cross cutting between flashbacks of Ebert's colorful life and times and his traumatic last days in the hospital.

The result is an effective look at a man whose passion for film was evident in every review he penned, but whose love of life, especially in his last years, taught his loyal readers to treasure every moment.
