ULTRAA unique insight into the pasts, hearts and minds of four everyday athletes embraced by the running director. Their dream and burden is to finish an extreme running race to test their limits, heal their souls and release their demons.
ULTRA is a creative documentary about people who dedicate their lives to running. The movie follows them as they confront extreme hardship and surpass the limits of their strength, both in their body and their mind. Whether running to escape from their everyday life, to challenge ageing or to seek the supernatural, every runner gets a taste of immortality and experiences his own mortality. The four protagonists have their own answers, particular motivations for why. For some of them it’s a therapy, for some of them it’s a compensation or a journey. ULTRA is a touching human drama, a character driven film told from an antiheroic angle. The movie follows the protagonists on the 246 km long road of contemplation and self-discovery. ULTRA offers a special access to the thoughts and naked emotions of everyday athletes.
