Unlimited is a fictional tale inspired by the true events in the life of KC native Harold Finch, a former NASA rocket scientist who is now a motivational speaker.
In the film, Simon (Daniel Ross Owens) is a brilliant student who tries to help a professor working on a device that would create unlimited energy. But in Mexico the professor is murdered, and Simon must run from the thugs in a drug cartel. Hiding out in an orphanage he meets Finch (played by Fred Thompson), and his life begins to change.
The film opens Friday at the Barrywoods, Eastglen, Independence, Town Center and Studio 30.
In addition, it will be shown for free to disadvantaged families whose children attend area public schools.
This movie is about the unlimited potential that I believe everybody has and that almost everyone misses out on, Finch, who lives in Lees Summit, said in a statement. We wanted to do something to give back to the community, to impact the youth, to inspire and encourage them.
