An award winning, action packed real life drama, Marathon Boy is the story of four-year-old Budhia Singh, who is plucked from an Indian slum by his coach and trained to become India’s greatest runner. A shocking tale of opportunism and corruption, but also a touching portrait of an authentic bond between a guru and a disciple.

An unforgettable documentary. Rivals any drama.”
– Hollywood Reporter

Epic, aritistic and even archetypal.”
