De toutes nos forces
Dir: Nils Tavernier
Julien is 17 and has cerebral palsy. His father, Paul, is a celebrated athlete. They do not always see eye to eye. Then Julien convinces his father to sign them up for an upcoming Ironman race – which will involve 2.4 miles of swimming, then 112 miles of cycling, followed by 26 miles of running. Will this impossible challenge help reconnect father and son? Will they manage to complete the race? Inspired by a true story
and brought back to the Learning programme by popular demand.
