Ramón is determined to finish an Iron-Man: 3.8 km swimming, 180 km cycling and 42 km running – tough enough even without his multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Based on an incredible true story, this deeply moving film celebrates determination and ambition, qualities that Ramón also manages to inspire in his depressed father-in-law, the delightfully curmudgeonly Manolo. The fraught relationship between Ramón and Manolo is a great source of comedy to lighten the mood, as is the acerbic wit of the fellow MS sufferers he meets. Spurred on by his formidably capable wife, Ramón’s achievement makes for an entertaining and inspiring tragicomic drama.
