Award-winning documentary filmmaker Andrew Jenks joins each on their powerful - and often unpredictable - journeys, spending a year embedded with them across the country. The series will give viewers a deeply personal, inspiring and always entertaining look inside each subject's life as they work to make their dreams a reality, despite their extraordinary circumstances. Over 10 expanded, hour-long episodes, Andrew Jenks will follow the lives of D-Real, Chad and Kaylin, and along the way, give viewers a raw look at their struggles to overcome the constant threat of gun violence, the challenges of living with autism, and battling the fear of cancer returning at such a young age.
