The Man Who Lost Himself

CFL Hall-of-Famer Terry Evanshen’s life changes forever when he survives a horrific car crash that erases the memory of who he was, his wife, his kids, his past. In every sense, except for his physical being, the old Terry died in that car crash. Now, he is a blank slate. Can he reconnect to who he was, build on that to create a new Terry when all he knows now is fear and anger and violent outbursts threaten his family?

Based on June Callwood’s award-winning book, The Man Who Lost Himself: The Terry Evanshen Story, the movie presents a compelling, true story about the courage to reinvent yourself, a heart-wrenching story of Terry Evanshen’s grueling comeback made possible by the love and commitment of his wife Lorraine and three daughters.
