When a local Bulls farmer ridicules him for barely breaking the 4 hour mark, the sarcastic Voice in his head returns to remind him he’s a running joke. Crippled with low self esteem but equipped with delusions of grandeur, Darryl decides to enter THE BEACH TO SNOW, the biggest multi-sport race in the country. And the only man who can help him achieve his ludicrous dream is the inspirational Outward Bound instructor from yesteryear who told him nothing is impossible, ‘The worditself says I’M POSSIBLE’.
