FIRST SILVER -SYNOPSIS
A far from athletic man, Grant, bets his jock workmates he can outlast them in The Comrades – famously the world’s toughest ultra-marathon. From there he scales formidable physical barriers to prepare for the race, while dealing with the sudden grave illness of his girlfriend. A story of mind over matter and sacrifice, set in the gorgeous South Africa backdrop, where racial divide still rears its ugly head. Forming an unlikely friendship with an elitist black athlete from the other side of the tracks, and finding his soul mate on the other side of the racial divide, Grant’s race to beat the odds becomes the core of a riveting drama that reflects a mosaic of compelling true-to-life experiences and realities.
