'The Seeker' centers on struggling screenwriter and former teacher, 45-year-old Evan Somers who sets out from Los Angeles on a road trip across America on his trusty motorcycle. Sound familiar? Stop right there. Somers is a quadriplegic. His motorcycle is a modified Honda automatic with attached sidecar that he slides onto in his wheelchair. And his midlife crisis is a bit different: he wants to know how close the medical establishment has come to a cure for the many like him paralyzed from spinal cord injuries. He wants to know if he will ever walk again or if he should just give up hope. Never wallowing in self-pity, but real and funny and unpretentious to the last, we get a glimpse into the lives of fellow humans struck down by this terrible malady and we hear from scientists and doctors about their predictions and prognosis. As a sideshow we also get a beautiful journey across America to the annual motorcycle extravaganza in Sturgis, where Evan becomes a star in his own right.
