The club's members, comprised of homeless drug addicts, a recovering single mom and an paroled murderer, consider themselves among those least likely to succeed. As they train together to run in international marathons, they learn to dream big as they are re-acquainted with their own dignity.Written by
A touching and heart-warming insight into the possibility of redemption
A criminal court judge uses his own passion for running and his compassion for the possibility of redemption, to help addicts get their lives back on track.
I found this documentary to be very moving; seeing their achievements, successes, and their dreams being attained gave me an overflow of emotion. It's a fascinating insight into the difficulties people can fall into and their struggles to move forwards. But it is the support and belief of a criminal court judge, more used to sentencing offenders that underpins the whole story. The open friendship he offers to those at a stage of their lives when little hope exists shows that a little passion and belief can move mountains. Well worth a watch - you may shed a tear or two on the way!
