Report a problem
1000 to 1 is the inspiring, true story of Cory Weissman, a high school basketball star who scored 1, 000 points in high school and was expected to be a standout athlete at Gettysburg College. Following a catastrophic stroke at the end of his freshman year, the film chronicles Cory's against-all-odds comeback from this life-threatening stroke with the help of his mother Tina, a physical therapist, as well as the encouragement of both his dedicated basketball coach and his girlfriend who loves Cory just the way he is. Cory is an upbeat, hard-working freshman getting ready to take over as point guard –but at the beginning of his sophomore year, suffers a catastrophic stroke and only quick action by his best friend “Pops” and the race to save his life in the athletic training room prevents him from dying. Despite the many challenges, Cory perseveres: the difficult physical therapy, an emotional break-up with the girl he loves, and dark moments that threaten to consume him. Through it all Cory prevails, with the love and support of his best friend, his family, his school, and most importantly—his own indomitable spirit. 1000 to 1 is the gripping, emotional, at times humorous and ultimately powerful story of Cory's against-all-odds recovery with the message that the human spirit has the power to overcome even the greatest obstacles. “1000 to 1” highlights Cory’s personal and spiritual growth that brings him the deep insights that can only be gained by surviving a near death experience—and shows an amazing act of sportsmanship at Cory's final basketball game--leading to a climactic free throw and an unexpected realization from Cory about finding new meaning in his life on, and more importantly, off the court.
