Not even know why, but one of a number of movies on sports theme, I sympathize with those that is dedicated to runners. Let them less than say American football, baseball or basketball, but they less uplifting.

Drew Jacobs (Kelly Blatz) from nature is endowed with the ability to run fast. Himself the hero, however does not see anything special in his talent and not particularly eager, it to develop. But when a local drug gang begins to demand from his older brother (Cam Gigandet), prompt payment of, long-standing monetary debt, drew understand that the only opportunity to earn the required amount in a legal way — to win the student track events. And it, it needed the fastest to cover the distance length in one square mile.

First and foremost, this film is a drama about a showcase something frustrated people, whose life is now bursting at the seams. The second line is the implication, consisting of a series of homilies in the spirit of "the Peace war" (2006), in similar to this picture. And only the third item in the plot, lies the sport line, which is not is an epic Olympics, but for the hero, it is extremely important personally, and because the background goes through the whole movie.

What history the race is important to drew, as a chance to new stage of life but not important in global terms, understand and Director — Charles-Olivier Michaud. So, he does not allow sports training and talk about the competition, has absorbed all the other promises of its tape. In the end, as such is the obsession with run, do not feel and output in all, it turns out a wonderful, realistic drama about all the obvious things.

Another America, of course unlikely here who will open, is not know that important — it's your family, maybe only a complete fool. But here's to positive emotions... could be anyone. After all, all played out in this story — honestly without exaggeration...

Do not be surprised if after watching, you want to go street like the hero of this film, take and to run aimlessly, until my feet do not will be denied. All sincere is contagious, and everything is real and genuine that when I look, I want to run along with a hero from all adversity, to something better.
