Inspired from conversations with author and runner, Ben Andrews of Portland Oregon, the film explores the running rehabilitation program at Oregon State Penitentiary.


The film takes a deep dive into the inspiration behind this life-changing program—from those on the outside who volunteer their time, to the incarcerated who've made running a part of their rehabilitation, to historical and inspirational figures like Steve Prefontaine, who started it all. 

Their journey changed their lives.
