The film tells the story of two young girls, living in a rural town as they try to run their way to a different life. Narrated by their friend Biruk, it follows their highs and lows over three years as they try to become professional athletes. Through their struggle, the film gives a unique insight into the ambitions of young Ethiopians living between tradition and the modern world.

As one of our WorldView alumni, Director Jerry Rothwell also gives his filmmaking tips in our Directors profile. Click here to hear Jerry talk about some of the issues he faced whilst filming.
