Estonian Stories. No Finish Line
Eesti lood. Ultravennikesed, Estonia, 2009, 28 min, Beta SP, Adventure and Sports
The finish line is merely a temporary road sign without any significant meaning. That is how it is with life as well: the fact that it has an end does not necessarily mean that existence has meaning. The finish line is simply a temporary goal that one sets for oneself, or a metaphor for quickly passing existence. Father Peeter, mother Pille and daughter Heleen Vennikas are travelling to Finland to participate in the annual ultra-marathon, which lasts for 24 hours straight. Hundreds of kilometres are covered in one astronomical day in this endurance race full of suffering at an indoor stadium in Espoo.
