I AM PATRICK SWAYZE is a feature documentary film exploring the 1980's most recognizable leading man, who challenged Hollywood's very notions of masculinity and redefined what it meant to be the Sexiest Man Alive. From his ferocious drive, to his most iconic roles and off camera battles with alcohol and cancer, Patrick's family, friends and collaborators reflect on the life and legacy of the man they endearingly called Buddy.
In vivid detail, the thirty-year veteran of stage and screen describes his Texas upbringing, his personal struggles, his rise to fame with "North and South", his commercial breakthroughs in "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost," and the soul mate who's stood by his side through it all: his wife, writer and director Lisa Niemi.

After leaving the dance world for good, Travis (Patrick Swayze), Chrissa and Max are pulled in to resurrect the dance that shattered their careers. They have one last chance to save the company, re-connect with the passion and magic, and prove that miracles really can happen.
