During the hot summer of 2004--the year of the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens--somewhere in a small Cretan village, Andipas, a spirited twelve-year-old boy, dreams of becoming a runner. However, without a coach on his side and no real training routine, the determined boy has no other choice but to turn the whole village into his running track. Now, even the smallest of errands are a reason for a battle against the clock--but, when everything goes wrong all at once on the big day of the 200m final--a frenzied race against Andipas' friends, the villagers, and ultimately, the clock, will be on. But, will he make it in time to watch the event on TV?
