This new documentary tells his story of his brave fight against the life changing effects of the degenerative disease ALS (a form of MND). The film is as much the family’s story as it is Fitzmaurice’s; not least his wife Ruth’s, whose own journey of self-discovery is utterly breathtaking. Sobering in its honesty, and bereft of all nods to sentimentality, this is a deeply enlightening, and absolutely inspirational watch.
