From underground movement to global sensation, it didn't take long for the sport of free running to spread all the way from the streets and onto people's televisions. Right there from the beginning and at the center of the world's gaze is three-time World Free Running champ, Jason Paul. An artist in motion, Jason discovered the fledgling discipline at a young age and as the sport has grown, so he has matured with it. Jason's tools are his mind and his athleticism; running, jumping, flipping, spinning and attempting what's never been done before. We follow the rise of free running through Jason's eyes as he travels the world; from training in the parkour playgrounds of Bangkok and LA, to a groundbreaking attempt to free-run where no other has before, Gunkanjima, the forbidden ghost island of Japan.
