A motivating and award-winning documentary about the redemptive power of running and the camaraderie of an unlikely group of individuals from LA's Skid Row who receive a second chance at life, all brought on by a simple act of kindness.
Follow the story of High Court Judge, Craig Mitchell, as he leads a long-distance running club out of the Midnight Mission on Skid Row. The running raises the spirits of Skid Row's inhabitants and gives a sense of purpose to a group of people who are homeless, addicted or coming out of the prison system.
