Award-winning director Arūnas Matelis’ new documentary looks behind the scenes of the notorious and celebrated Italian Grand Tour Cycling race Giro d'Italia. This is the first-time in over 40 years, an independent-filmmaker outside of the broadcast networks has been allowed to capture the event. Following the medic teams over several years, the documentary reveals the unseen footage of the riders at the back of the race - the so-called "water carriers," "domestiques," "Gregarios"- who forego their careers and personal victories for the sake of victory for their leader. It is one of the most awarded films of 2018, with 15 international awards in its account and being the official Lithuanian entry to two Oscar 2019 categories – Best Foreign Language and Best Documentary film.
