Three men attempt to do the unthinkable -- traverse the Sahara desert by means of running -- in this documentary chronicling a journey begun in November 2006. As they interact with the cultures and people of Africa, the runners promote H2O Africa, a charity that strives to promote clean drinking water for the impoverished areas on the tour.
