These individuals’ stories of tragedy and triumph along with Coury’s fierce determination to help those he has met along the way make Coury’s life a mirror for those listening. Nadus Films, the nonprofit movie making company that Coury founded 15 years ago, exists “to make films that make a difference.” Like Nadus Films, Coury lives a life that doesn’t stop at pressing play. Awareness is never enough. Coury’s life and message demand adventure, activism, and altruism.
