Eoin Keith is one of Ireland's leading ultra runners. In April 2017 he set out to beat Mimi Anderson's long standing record of the fastest timed record of running the length of Ireland. Eoin was to run from the bottom of Ireland (Mizen Head) to the top of Ireland (Malin Head). He would have to brave difficult weather conditions and beat what was already a daunting record. This film explores the psyche of this incredible athlete and the support team who would be there with him until the very end.
