Brief synopsis in English:

A Running Guide to Becoming You Own Hero

Idomeneas is a robust Cretan who runs the Athens Marathon barefoot, wearing a full suit of armor. Andonis is a shepherd who discovered his talent for long distances after he accidentally outran a wolf. At 85, Stelios is the oldest marathoner in Greece. The older he gets, the more races he runs. Every time they cross the finish line, they're one step closer to their own version of immortality.

Brief synopsis in Greek:

Ένας Οδηγός για Σούπερ Ήρωες της Διπλανής Πόρτας

Ο Ιδομενέας είναι ένας εύρωστος Κρητικός που τρέχει τον Αυθεντικό Μαραθώνιο ξυπόλητος, φορώντας αρχαιοελληνική πανοπλία. Ο Αντώνης είναι ένας βοσκός του παλιού καιρού, που ανακάλυψε το τρέξιμο κυνηγώντας ένα λύκο. Ο Στέλιος είναι ο γηραιότερος Έλληνας μαραθωνοδρόμος, που μοιάζει να τρέχει πρόσω ολοταχώς προς την αθανασία. Κάθε φορά που περνούν τη γραμμή του τερματισμού, έρχονται ένα βήμα πιο κοντά στον καθημερινό ήρωα που κρύβουν μέσα τους!
