The movie made about his story
Based on a true story, Cory Weissman was a basketball player, who suffered a catastrophic stroke while attending Gettysburg College. He scored 1000 points in high school and looked forward to success as a starting point guard. Basketball is his life's primary focus, but as a freshman, he suffers a catastrophic stroke, which paralyzes the entire left side of his body. Cory needs to learn how to cope with his disability and answer the question "why me? Does everything happen for a reason or is it just fate?"
Despite the dire prognosis of his brain damage, the young athlete is optimistic of his recovery and return to basketball. Physical therapy is slow, but with the support of his family, best friend, coach and teammates, Cory returns to college. Cory is allowed to dress and play in the last game his senior year. To the joy of everyone, he scores one point—hence the title "1000 to 1". He finds new meaning in his life, both on and off the court.
