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. Hes convinced Indigenous Australians have a natural talent for distance running.

Now these young men are thrown into a brutal 8-month training regime to teach them how to run distance.
