Paul Averhoff was once a great marathon runner, a legend, and gold medal winner at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. Now well over 70, he moves out of his beloved home after his wife suffers several falls. In the nursing home, where Paul is left to choose between the singing group and handicraft classes, he can no longer avoid the decisive question: Was that it? No way! To ward off severe depression, he dons his old running shoes, and begins jogging in the nursing home park. Day in and day out, he does his laps – first at a snail`s pace, then faster and faster. The other nursing home residents think he has lost his mind, especially after he announces that he is training for the Berlin Marathon, which he intends to win! The nursing home goes haywire… [Synopsis courtesy of Berlinale]
