For the downhill challenge at the Winter Olympics 1976, there could only be one favourite: Franz Klammer.
The charismatic Austrian downhill racer carried the hopes of a whole nation on his shoulders.
With the public’s pressure reaching astronomical proportions, his sponsor wanting to change his equipment at the last minute for promotional reasons, the weather conditions worsening by the day, the mountain turning out to be defiant and rival racers on his heels, Franz needs to face the ultimate challenge: He has to find the strength to conquer the mountain on his own. But in order to do that, he needs the love of his life, Eva, to give him the courage to free himself from all restraints in order to perform the race of a lifetime.
