Tim is a gifted runner and a motivated pupil. But his classmates have little time for him. In particular, Jeff, who is similarly talented at sports, bullies the 16-year old viciously. In his final year, Tim has had enough and prepares to retaliate. At the school sports day he goes up against his rival in the 800 metres in order to spoil his chances in the national trials. But Jeff knows of a secret Tim has. Will the bullying never end?
