The fascinating, true-life story of endurance athlete Jerzy Gorski. In 1990 in the World Triathlon Championships Double Ironman competition he finished with a time of 24:47:46, setting a world record. His story is full of incredible ups and downs, tremendous effort, and unbelievable strength. His achievements would not have been possible without two women in his life. One woman he lost. The other woman inspired him to fight for his life. Extraordinary story of a man who found himself on a verge of self-annihilation only to overcome his addictions and succeed in the most unbelievable way.
