The poignant and inspiring true story of the relationship between Poet Laureate William Meredith and his lover, poet Richard Harteis, is tenderly brought to the screen by director Biju Viswanath, creating a joyful testament to the triumph of love and the reserve and resilience of the human spirit.

When poet and teacher Meredith suffers a stroke, his long-time companion Harteis, a writer and marathon runner, begins a determined battle to nurse his lover back to health.

Confronted by a legal system and family members that don't recognise their union as well as an arduous therapy routine, Harteis never gives up hope - giving his lover emotional and physical support that ultimately allows each man to find the courage inside him to conquer the burdens which lay ahead.

Told with an eloquence of prose and evoking passionate emotional responses - much like Meredith's own poems - Marathon, based on the book by Harteis, is a stirring portrait of two men's unpredictable course and what it takes to cross the finish line.
