Schuller’s documentary is a peek behind the scenes of 2011 Tour de France. It portraits the struggles of the Leopard Trek cycling team that has two of the world’s greatest cyclists, Andy and Frank Schleck. This is an intimate portrait of two brothers and their team, all working under unimaginable pressure of the most important race in the cycling calendar. We watch their relationship, motivations, and their struggle with the physical and emotional borders, with which cyclists must cope in order to win the greatest cycling race in the world.
