A dramatic short about Sonnie Murphy, an impoverished man from Co Clare, and the 1932 Olympics. Though a talented athlete, Sonnie(Stephen D’Arcy), has to contend with  poverty, the disapproval of his family and the searing heat of Los Angeles as he plans to compete in the games. An inspiring, against-the-odds story grounded in a painful reality.
