An engrossing documentary following the Mongol Derby horse race - the longest and toughest horse race in the world, as it leads through 650 miles of Mongolian steppe, desert and mountain ranges.
In this grueling race, the riders are on their own, navigating from horse station to horse station where they change horses every 30 miles. They deal with dehydration, hypothermia, exhaustion, extreme weather, swollen rivers and roaming wolves. The riders stay the nights out in the wild or with nomad families.
Filmmaker Ivo Marloh rides the mammoth race twice to embed himself in the individual stories and document exactly what compels riders from all around the world to risk life-threatening injuries on an experience that will change their lives forever. (Some subtitles)
