A man who loses his legs in the Boston Marathon bombing must recover and adjust to his new life circumstances.

Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal, NIGHTCRAWLER) was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon in April 2013, cheering on his girlfriend (Tatiana Maslany), when a homemade bomb tore through the crowd - blasting apart his legs below the knees and necessitating a double amputation. In the months that followed, Jeff's determination and drive to recover his life inspired millions.

Based on the horrifying true story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings and directed by David Gordon Green (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS), STRONGER is a rallying cry for victims everywhere - portraying the true struggles and difficulties they face, but also the dedication and perseverance that allow them to continue in the face of incredible odds.
