Felix grows up as an inside spectator at veterans' bike races - a violent, drug-infused world where his father dominates with both pedals and fists. Felix follows in his footsteps and even surpasses his talent, making his father proud but jealous at the same time. On the way to become a pro rider, Felix rebels and flees to Italy, the promised land of youth cycling. However, his body doesn't respond to the widespread miracle drug EPO and he ends up drained by the brutal training. His father comes to the rescue by transfusing his own blood to him. Now nothing can stop them, not even the threat of cancer. After all, what is cancer compared to winning the race of your dreams?
