Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
You almost surely have a locked up recliner mechanism. If one side does move then you know the linkage from the handle is intact.
You can first do a visual inspection to see if you're able to find any physical damage, something foreign in the seat adjuster blocking movement, anything of that nature. I assume this has already been done.
If nothing can be seen then the seat will need to be removed and dissembled to gain access to the adjuster and verify that's the issue.
