In 2012, after being diagnosed with melanoma at the age of 64, former Israeli Special Forces Operative, noted Survivalist, and Florida native Mickey Grosman made a remarkable decision. He wanted to do something extraordinary to empower those who are fighting cancer and to honor those who have been lost, especially the children. Driven by profound determination and a powerful sense of duty, he assembled a team of amateur adventurers crazy enough to join him and set out on what was deemed by others to be an impossible expedition. They would cross 5,000 miles through the Amazon Jungle from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean…on foot! No one, not even Mickey, could have imagined what lay ahead of them on this unprecedented journey.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Adam Bret and executive producer/film subject Mickey Grossman, and moderator Dr. Michael Troner. To view the conversation please click here.


The Miami Jewish Film Festival virtual program is made possible with the generous support of Benjamin Nahum and Tamar Roodner.
