"A marathon is a long journey", says the Kenyan runner Visiline Jepkesho. Like every runner in the east African nation, success brings with it the burden of responsibility. Running is a way out of poverty, for the runner and their entire family. We see how Visiline wins international competitions and deals with defeat, how she moves into her first home with water and electricity, and how she deals with the growing conflicts within her own family. This film's marathon is a complicated story of empowerment for the young who run in Africa.
