It is the story of 1950’s bike-racer Valeriano Falsini who, through his incredible life of sacrifices and victories, enters in the professional cycling while focusing on his tragic friendship with the great champion Fausto Coppi.  It is a dramedy period film about courage in which professional bike racing is the symbol of a wounded and torn Italy trying to raise her head after the terrible events of World War II.
