The Screen Guide

RUNNING TO AMERICA is a story about unlikely opportunity. Five young Indigenous men from the Australian Outback are plucked from obscurity by marathon legend Robert de Castella. He’s convinced Indigenous Australians have a natural talent for distance running. The five men come from isolated communities and are cut off from the everyday opportunities that modern youth take for granted. Now these young men are thrown into a brutal 8-month training regime to teach them how to run distance.
