Theo Gordimer is a couch potato who prefers playing video games to playing sports. Then his world is rocked when his favourite aunt is diagnosed with cancer. Theo wants to do something - anything - other than visit the hospital and bring flowers. But what? Then a friend tells him about a 5km road race to benefit cancer research. Though he's nervous about the challenge Theo decides it's time to get off his couch. And so he begins a training program that opens a new door for him - and helps his aunt as well.
