Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal), who was at the Boston Marathon in 2013 to cheer on his girlfriend, Erin Hurley (Tatiana Maslany), was waiting near the finish line when bombs went off. The 27-year-old man was photographed as he was wheeled into an ambulance.
Although he lost the lower portion of his legs that day, he was able to help police identify the killers from his hospital bed.
Based on the book Stronger by Jeff Bauman and Bret Witter.
