The Finishers from veteran documentarian Nils Tavernier (Aurore) is the powerful story of a father who teams with his wheelchair-bound son to conquer the gruelling gauntlet of an Ironman Triathlon.

Though 17-year-old Julien (Fabien Héraud) enjoys the unbridled affection of his mother, Claire (Alexandra Lamy), he has always felt distant from his father, Paul (Jacques Gamblin). A rugged outdoorsman and avid thrill-seeker, Paul bitterly resents the congenital palsy that confines his son to a wheelchair, and has often sought work far from home as a means of suppressing his frustrations. With the termination of his latest contract, however, the situation quickly comes to a head.
