The boys grow up together in the small village of Ganda Abdi, until one day both their friendship and their attitude towards life are dramatically changed by one single photograph. They start to go their separate ways as Emra leaves his village to find a camera in Addis Ababa. Dabo continues to live in the village and pursues his dream of becoming a successful marathon runner. At age 18, Dabo is preselected for the Ethiopian national marathon team and moves to the capital city where his friend Emra had arrived several years earlier to seek his fortune. Dabo learns that Emra, who was believed dead, had become a street child in Addis Ababa. He begins to search for Emra. During this search the audience is immersed in a world determined by the quest for true friendship, inner strength and the meaning of one’s own destiny. “RUNNING AGAINST THE WIND” is the story of a friendship, and an optimistic and authentic movie inspired by true events. It shows in a sociological - critical manner that anything is possible and nothing is determined.
