Jeff Bauman (Jake Gyllenhaal) and his ex girlfriend Erin (Tatiana Maslany) run into each other at a local bar weeks before the Boston Marathon. Erin is raising money for a charity for the marathon while Jeff is  having a good time with his friends at the bar. Jeff wasn't the most dependable boyfriend. He was immature, and didn't always show up for Erin when she needed him. However, when Jeff does show up with a homemade sign cheering on his ex as she's running in the Boston Marathon, his life dramatically changes. Stronger is a true story based on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. It highlights the story of Jeff Bauman, a guy who loses his legs when he finally shows up for his true love.
