Rueben Singleterry: Made of Steel, follows 15-year-old San Antonio native, Rueben Singleterry. In September 2014, Rueben was diagnosed with encephalitis, a rare virus which causes inflammation in the brain. The resulting seizures he endured nearly took his life. Rueben has spent the last year beating the odds to an almost full recovery.
Part of Rueben's incentive to overcome his adversity was so he could pursue his passion for basketball. In this 12 minute film Rueben is given a platform with which to share his story, from his near death experience to joining his high school basketball team. He hopes to inspire others to never give up, no matter how difficult the circumstances.
