When his beloved brother commits suicide, Kirk starts running straight into the hell of Badwater, the ultimate test of endurance equal to five consecutive marathons. Alongside a group of virtual running machines, Kirk will stare down his limitations and his fears on a journey that might offer the redemption of his most personal loss.
