I’ll Push You is an up-close and personal look into the dynamics of a life-long friendship between two best friends, Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray, as they travel across El Camino de Santiago. This feature-length documentary covers the struggle of the 35-day, 500-mile wheelchair journey across mountains, deserts, hills, and valleys and features perspectives from family and friends.

Even though the story begins with the challenge that comes with Patrick’s willingness to push Justin in a wheelchair across northern Spain, I’ll Push You also explores the struggles related to Justin’s rare neurological disease. The parallel paths of Patrick’s experience in Spain and Justin’s life journey come together in a singular moment to reveal their similarities where Patrick discovers he’s both the pusher and the pushed.

The story’s beautiful cinematography is set to poignant music tracks that underscore, perfectly, the inspiring example of love and vulnerability on display.

Their trek in 2014 captivated individuals around the world. Since returning from Spain, Justin and Patrick have been sharing their message of hope, faith, and community worldwide.
