"An Artistic project based on a physical and mental challenge: the Atlantic Ultra Marathon."


Documentary synopsis.

In Southern Portugal, 50 km far from Lisbon, there’s a territory of rare natural beauty, set on one of the coastlines in Europe, with the least man made intervention.

The set for a unique race in the world, running for 43 km on sandy beaches along side the Atlantic Ocean. A challenge that requires: attitude, metal strength, preparation, training and sacrifice. The athletes challenge their own limits, confronting the distance and crossing for all of us, that territory.

The film follows eight of them, of different origins and conditions, talking about their motivations to run, about what do they think while running and what does it mean for each to be a runner.
