Passion. Endurance. Fear. Rebirth. Dreams. All these motifs are entwined into six life stories filmed in six European countries. Although the characters in the film are different, they all have the bicycle as an idea and a way of living. Thanks to their passion they have discovered surprising spaces within themselves, and the bicycle had changed their previous perspective on the world. The change is the main motif connecting all of these six stories, and cycling becomes a means for self-therapying of the mind and the body. No need to worry, though – this description only sounds so far-fetched. The film itself touches earthbound issues, such as LIFE ITSELF.
