Storyline

Three exceptional athletes in the demanding field of extreme sport are followed. They fly along cliffs, dive without oxygen into the depths of the sea and prove the capabilities of the human body during the longest endurance bike race. What motives and thoughts have made them into modern day heroes? What causes the fascination for individuals who expose themselves to exceptional risks? The movie follows these people in the attempt to find the limits of performance. We get to know their environment, their companions, but also listen to critical voices. We hear the desires and fears of the families and venture, through the inner circle of friends, into the psyche of the athletes. And what motives are important for these pursuits? Is it the lust for fame? For immortality? For the absolute life experience? Written by Anonymous

Great movie about extreme sports with profoundness! The pictures and music give goosebumps feeling
1 October 2014 | by bachheimerSee all my reviews

The movie gives a great insight to the living and backgrounds of extreme athletes. Each of them from a different sport, different background and story.

The movie is also giving critical opinion from experts, stating the dangers, backgrounds and desire of the extreme athletes.

Music: ++ gives goosebumps, it's a great soundtrack. Pictures: ++ great nature and underwater scenes, and close records of the sport itself Protagonists: ++ very charismatic characters, very different perspectives

I would definitely recommend in seeing the movie ... Its a movie that gives something to think about. The athletes become very personal and you can identify with and learn from them.
