“Adrenaline” is a winner of a film! Joseph Jenkins (Michael Rosander) is a racer, just like his dad, and he likes to win. When challenged by a jerk named Jason Skynard (Anthony Reynolds) to race for a nice cash prize, Joseph can’t refuse. The race begins just as it starts raining and Joseph’s car flips several times, leaving him paralyzed. His racing days seem to be behind him.
Enter Josie Rigsby (Charlene Amoia), a physical therapist who takes a liking to Joseph. In one scene, when Joseph is having a bad day and feeling sorry for himself, Josie shows him a scrapbook of former patients and what they went on to accomplish. For example, a young woman named Kate lost a leg at age 22 but went on to land a great job, get married, and have children. Joseph’s roommate, Eli, helps him open up and has Joseph join him and some other patients for a game of throwing objects in a bed pan! Another influential person who comes into his life is Joseph’s Uncle Paul (John Schneider). Uncle Paul gets Jospeh into a race car and racing again, something he never thought would be possible.
