SYNOPSIS: Winner of four Academy Awards® including Best Picture! The historic film, renowned for its stirring portrayal of athletic heroism and faith during the 1924 Olympics, tells the true story of British sprinter Eric Liddell, who famously refused to run the Sunday of his signature race because of his strict observance of the Christian Sabbath. Though ridiculed by the British Olympic Committee, his fellow athletes, and most of the world press, Liddell triumphed in a new event, winning the 400 meters in Paris. Liddell and teammate Harold Abrams, a Jewish runner who won gold in the 100-meter race, were able to return home victorious and true to their faiths.
