WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
1924. The Paris Olympic Games. A devout Scottish Christian runs for the glory of God. An English Jew runs to overcome prejudice. Two young track athletes. A battle fraught with social and political pressures to gain acceptance and represent Great Britain. Based on the extraordinary true story of Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams, Chariots of Fire is a tale of hope, honour and belief, prevailing in the face of overwhelming odds.
