Sport 52' 100'


In August 2024, Paris will host its very first Summer Paralympic Games. 11 days of competition, 22 different sports and 549 trials during which some 4,400 Paralympic athletes will shine and compete.


Four top athletes – including 17-time American Paralympic medalist Oksana Masters – have decided to pursue their dream of qualifying for these Paralympic Games. Coming from different countries and specializing in a variety of disciplines (para-triathlon, para-swimming, handbike and para-taekwondo...), they are all driven by a steely determination. From intensive training to championships, via scenes from everyday life, we accompany them on their path to victory. Will they achieve their dream


The determination of these athletes also has the power to change the way society looks at differently-abled people. To do this, we aim to widen the frame, and capture the off-screen aspects of their lives outside competition.


This documentary offers a prodigious immersion in the world of parasports, meeting athletes with uncommon destinies. While drawing the portraits of these men and women, it raises essential questions about the visibility of differently-abled people in our society.
