This is the story from inside of the bike racing helmet of 18-year-old Rasmus Quaade whose biggest dream is to become world champion in track bicycle racing. He has talent like few others and a body made for the sport. He is dead set on winning everything, beating all competitors and beating his own records. But being a teenager with a sensitive mind, his thoughts and reflections on life, death, fear and doubt may very well be what hinders him from succeeding and instead may lead him down a wrong and dangerous path.

We follow Rasmus Quaade under his hard training, getting to know him on an intensely personal level. His pondering and reflective mind makes this a personal portrait on the deepest of levels.

First time documentary director Daniel Dencik delivers a brutally honest and heartbreaking picture of a young man’s struggle to achieve his greatest goals. But the path to reach them is lonely and rugged for a man whose mind is both his weakness and his strength.
