Based on the true story of Scottish cyclist Graeme Obree. Despite modest beginnings and a lifelong battle with bipolar disorder, this tenacious and resourceful competitor pedaled his way into history. In 1993, Obree designed and built a bicycle from scrap metal and washing machine parts. Pitted against top competitors in a high-profile race, he broke the world record - only to have his title stripped later in a storm of controversy.
