Royd Tolkien, great-grandson of J.R.R Tolkien, lost his brother Mike to ALS (Motor Neuron Disease, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) in 2015. But Mike, who was the more adventurous and sporty of the two brothers, left behind a bucket list of 50 things he wants Royd to complete in his absence. Now Royd will embark on the ultimate adventure of adrenalin and emotion to fulfill his brother’s ambitions, raise awareness of ALS, entertain the viewer but most of all teach us to live for the moment, seize the day and not wait until it is too late to reach for our dreams.
