Trailer

It is a fascinating story inspired by the life of Jerzy Górski, who won 1990 the World Triathlon Championships Double Ironman Competition, setting a world record. An addict for 15 years, Jerzy decides to go into rehabilitation at the Monar Centre in Wrocław. Step by step, he transforms into a zealous triathlete, successfully competing in international competitions.

His achievements would not have been possible without two women in his life. One woman he lost, the other inspired him to fight for his life. Extraordinary story of a man who found himself on a verge of self-annihilation only to overcome his addictions and succeed in the most unbelievable way.
