Brief synopsis

Nearly no other part of society is still so rigidly separated by gender as the world of sports. This not only affects the athletes, but also significantly shapes the gender perception of millions of spectators. In a mixture of documentary, fiction and archival footage, this film searches for the queer-feminist potential in the Olympic disciplines of running. It envisions a world beyond stereotypical gender categories. A brightly colored manifesto.
