Charged chronicles the life-changing journey of chef and outdoorsman Eduardo Garcia after being shocked by 2,400 volts of electricity in a freak accident while hiking in the remote back country of Montana. Eduardo lost his hand, ribs, muscle mass and nearly his life, but more important than what he lost is what he found. Through sheer resilience, his former partner, Jennifer Jane, nursed Eduardo back to health and he learned to embrace his past, his family and his future. A survival and love story unlike any other, Charged tells Eduardo’s remarkable journey from getting up off the forest floor to becoming the man he is today.
