“Reach” is a film that takes you from the wards of the Children’s Hospital, right out into the heart of the Peak District. Filmed over four years, “Reach” tells the story of Clare, a climber from Sheffield, U.K., who suffered a life-altering stroke at 13 which left her unable to move anything but her left eye.
