Based on the true story of Jerzy Górski, triathlon world champion. At the age of fifteen, Jerzy’s addiction gets him in trouble with the law and leads him to several suicide attempts. After fifteen years of living on the edge, he decides to go into rehab. It is there that he begins training as a runner, and it becomes his passion. Jerzy continues training at the local sports club; a mere two years later he becomes runner up in the Polish triathlon championship. Four years later, he wins the Double Ironman challenge in the United States, earning him the unofficial title of world champion. To date, no Polish sports figure has matched his accomplishment.
