Łukasz Palkowski (director of the box-office hit “Gods”), was inspired in this movie by the real life
events of an extraordinary human being. The man who proved that real heroes are not afraid to fall

athlete, who captured the world’s imagination, while to this day he’s virtually anonymous in Poland.
This captivating story of torturous efforts, spectacular failures and extraordinary strength, was
inspired by the life of Jerzy Górski, who completed the Death Run and set the record in the triathlon
world championships, winning the Double Ironman distance in 24h:47min:46sec.
This feat wouldn’t be possible without two women in his life. The one that he lost. And the one, that
became the inspiration to fight for his life. Starring: Jakub Gierszał, Janusz Gajos, Magdalena Cielecka,
