A portrait of life with ALS for fitness mogul Augie Nieto and his wife.
Entrepreneur Augie Nieto found success in the fitness industry with the Lifecycle. At the age of 47, in 25, he was diagnosed with ALS. In response, Nieto, together with his supportive wife, Lynne, set up Augie’s Quest, an organization devoted to raising funds for research into the disease. Keach profiles the devoted couple as they contend with the challenges of ALS and of their mission to finds its cure. While treading on familiar terrain as other films addressing life with a debilitating and likely terminal diagnosis, and tending to over-rely on disconnected, indulgent anecdotes about Augie, the uplifting film benefits from Lynne’s centrality and candor.
