Based on the incredible and touching true story of a Spanish young with multiple sclerosis . A business man , Manolo : Dani Rovira , who has his woman pregnant : Alexandra Jimenez , undergoes a terrible illness : multiple sclerosis . As the hospital scanner gives him a sad diagnosis that disturbs his family , as we watch how it gradually wreaks havoc on the united group . At hospital he meets other sick people : Alba Riva , David Verdaguer , Bruno Bergonzini and befriend to them , most of them submitted to wheelchairs . Then , to better himself and overcome obstacles , as he is helped by his beloved wife and a grumpy old man who results to be his grizzled , father-in-law : Karra Errejalde , he is a fashioned man who grows medical marijuana and hides dark secrets . Then Manolo himself makes a bet , to finish a difficult Triathlon , an Iron-Man feat : 3,8 km swimming, 180 km cycling and 42 km running. And he was told that he could not make 100 metres. ¡ Everybody suffers an incurable and degenerative illness: Life ¡ . ¡ Giving up is not an option ¡

This great picture involves deep drama, emotion , love story , family , human values and a provoking story about people who surmount their vital difficulties .This is a stirring and sensitive look at multiple sclerosis (MS) and , but ultimately attempts to construct family's unity and sense of love , friendship , to improve themselves , and belonging , too . The film is pretty good , but relies heavily on the relationships between husband-wife along with the father in law . Dani Rovira and Alexandra Jimenez deliver top-drawer interpretations as the enjoyable marriage whose lives go wrong when receive the fateful fate . Karra Elejalde gives a splendid as well as sympatheric acting as the angry widower , as usual , creating an awesome chemical with his son in law/Dani Rovira . Karra suggested Dani Rovira for the lead role when he was offered the project. Support cast is frankly excellent , such as : David Verdaguer , Clara Segura as Dra. Berta , Alba Ribas , Bruno Bergonzini , Andrés Velencoso and Maria de Medeiros who long years ago co-starred along with Karra Elejade : Airbag . Furthermore , the extras of the hospital scenes are, actually, real patients and real doctors from the Institut Guttman. Most of the extras of the Iron Man scenes are also actual athletes too.

Xavi Gimenez cinematography is excellent creating an adequate environment , , he's expert on sombre photography as well as frightening and scary atmosphere ( Machinist , Transsiberian , Fragile , Intact , Nameless , The secret of Marrowbone ) but he has photographed spectacular and sunny films ( Agora, Libertador , La gran aventura de Mortadelo y Filemón) , too .
