TRIAL BY FIRE: Lives Re-Forged follows the journeys of extraordinary people who survive critical burns and rise above their injuries to discover a transformed worldview. A firefighter endures a 1500 degree inferno; a teenage athlete engulfed in flames triumphs against all odds; an oil worker survives an incredible refinery blast; a race-car driver’s miraculous comeback from a fiery wreck; an honors student caught in a chemistry class explosion; and a mother burned at home dedicates her recovery to her children. All are given context and perspective by burn survivor and Dancing with the Stars Champion, J.R. Martinez. When you forge metal with fire, it becomes stronger. The same is true of the human spirit.
