Patrick Vaughan, an accomplished trail runner, small business owner, parent, and survivor of serious physical impairments, shares his story of healing and redemption while pursuing the record for completing the Lebanon Mountain Trail 470km. Exquisite handheld and drone cinematography and a soundtrack from local musicians provide context to this rugged north-to-south trail run, traversing from Syria to the Israeli border.
