Up For Air follows Jerry Cahill, a 58-year-old pole-vaulting coach battling Cystic Fibrosis (CF), who is now 20 years past his given life expectancy and one of the oldest living patients with the genetic disease.

CF causes patients to produces excessive amounts of cement-like mucus which clogs the airways in lungs making it difficult to breathe and causing frequent infections. Despite improved medical treatments, Jerry is confronted with respiratory degeneration, mounting depression, and an inevitable procedure that all CF patients must one day face: a double-lung transplant – an unpredictable operation that only 50% of patients survive 5 years post transplant.

Up For Air is an intimate cinematic journey shot over five years which urges us to consider: when life presents impossible barriers, where do you find the motivation to succeed?
