Description

Presented by Greater Bellingham Running Club As a young refugee ripped from his home in Sudan and dropped into high school in New Hampshire, Guor Marial struggles to adjust to life as an ordinary student without speaking English and with no friends or family in the States. But things change forever when he meets track coach Rusty Cofrin and his Olympic dreams become a future he could never have imagined. His difficult and triumphant journey from refugee to world-renowned athlete is told through intimate interviews with gorgeously animated flashbacks, as he strives for athletic greatness.
