In the darkest times of Italian history, the unforgettable cycling champion Gino Bartali saved hundreds of Jews by transporting counterfeit identity papers hidden in the frame of his bike.
60 years later Bartali’s bicycle becomes the instrument and symbol of the cycling victory of David, a smart and sensitive Jewish boy, a determined athlete who accepts the challenge of winning together with his Arabic friend Ibrahim, violating the rules but making peace and tolerance triumph between their communities.
