The extraordinary story of seven retired Chinese men and women who embark on a 3,100 kilometre cycling journey from a smoggy industrial city in northwest China, across the Tibetan plateau to Everest Base Camp. Among the cyclists are a veteran explorer and stroke survivor, a soldier-turned-musician and a rubber factory worker who has just recovered from a year-long poison-induced paralysis. The seven cyclists all survived traumatic experiences during the Cultural Revolution, contributing to their determination in finding fulfillment through undertaking a grueling personal challenge late in life. Bearcage worked with director Zhang Zeming and production company and distributor Ronin Films to complete the post-production on this award winning documentary.
