A biopic about the inspirational true story of Polish athletics legend, Jerzy Górski (Jakub Gierszał). A former drug addict who went to prison a few times, he managed to pull his life back together with the support of those close to him and in 1990 became world-famous for winning the Double Iron Triathlon. The film is a faithful depiction of his life, chronicling the hardships as well as the triumphs, and reminding us that most times you can’t have one without the other. Palkowski was nominated for a Golden Lion at the Polish Film Festival.
