From his battle to become the best in the world of competitive cycling to his struggle with the cancer that could have ended his life, seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong has served as an inspiration to a generation of athletes. Even before being diagnosed with testicular cancer Armstrong's life was full of challenges, and though the odds were stacked against him, the determined American cyclist would rise to the top of a sport generally thought to be dominated by Europeans by claiming multiple victories at the physically demanding Tour de France. In this intimate and revealing documentary, Armstrong tells his story both in his own words, and through the images that would inspire both athletes and cancer survivors worldwide.
