A well-known real story: Bohumil Hanč and Václav Vrbata, two pioneers of Czech skiing, were found frozen to death on the ridges of the Giant Mountains after the fatal 50-kilometer ski race which took place on March 24, 1913. The story of male endurance and friendship. Hanč and Vrbata have become true legends, except that the history books choose to say nothing about the third hero of the dramatic events, the German athlete Emmerich Rath… Aiming to set the historical record straight, Last Race revisits the time before World War I and the small world of the newly stirred-up and burning Czech national pride in an exciting modern retelling of an old story, filled with nail-biting drama and suspense.
