What’s the most important in the cinema? Its stories.We make our best to find those, where bicycle is included. Here comes one of the most important stories for us during this event.

In 2010 Matt Austin, being only 20 yo was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease. Having last 10 years of his life, he organises the bicycle ojurney with his uncle along the east coast of the U.S. (400 miles). The goal is not only to spread the knowledge about the disease, but first of all reconciliation of the conflicted family. It’s a documentry about determination to live and expierience as much as you can, no mather the circumstances.

Huntington’s disease (HD), also known as Huntington’s chorea, is an inherited disorder that results in death of brain cells. The earliest symptoms are often subtle problems with mood or mental abilities. A general lack of coordination and an unsteady gait often follow.
