About the film

It’s been called the toughest endurance race in the world … why would anyone do it, especially when it’s 40 degrees below zero? Set in Northern Minnesota, we meet Leah, a junk food eating scientist, and Bill, an accomplished ultra-marathoner who just can’t seem to finish this incredibly challenging race. They run, bike or ski 135 miles over three days in the solitary woods, sometimes hallucinating and barely stopping to sleep in the snow without freezing to death. What can we learn from them about life, love and happiness?
