A film based on the life of Jerzy Górski, a small-town drug addict in western Poland, who after years of struggle, rose to athletic greatness.
After fourteen years of alcoholism and addiction, losing his child, the death of his mother, Jerzy Gorski truly hits rock bottom. But once he breaks with the past, he fights like hell to start a new life, one step at a time, until he begins to run, and sets the record in the triathlon world championships, winning the title of Double Ironman champion with 24h:47min:46s. This inspiring true story proves you can beat your own demons, at the finish line.
