Cycling fans are elated when Biniam Girmay becomes the first cyclist from an African country to win a stage of the Giro d’Italia in 2022. The film accompanies Girmay over two years on his difficult path through this still deeply European sport: as a young talent from Eritrea via the world federation training camps to his first moments of success.
