Going the Distance is an award-winning short documentary about a running-addict who has been diagnosed with cancer. Maurice Mullins was once an ultra distance runner and is now undergoing chemotherapy. His disease has meant that he has lost his lifelong passion, but his determination to compete again in a sport that he loves drives him to face his darkest days with optimism and humour. The director is Maurice’s daughter.
