Mountain biking in a distant land of Middle East. Filmed in 2014 in northern Iran, documentary movie about the best Iranian mountain cyclists is a chance to get to know iranian cycling community far from fundamentalism. Hossein Zanjanian, the best Iranian downhill cyclist and his fearless crew shows us the very different approach to their country. With stunning scenery, action full of spectacular tricks, its also full of the focus on people, their relations and… how cars can be worshipped and therefore making bicycle being nearly excluded from the society.
