Story of De Marathon

Four mechanics from Rotterdam, Gerard, Nico, Kees and Leo lived their lives on beer, fastfood and cigarettes. When Gerard’s garage is on the edge of bankruptcy , the men come up with a luminous idea to find a sponsor and run the marathon. 42 kilometers and with a total lack of physical condition.  Will they make it? Led by their colleague Youssef, a former marathon runner, the training starts to rescue their partner’s garage. But there is more at stake than reaching the finish.
A moving story about humor, friendship, and love.
