After a devastating lung illness, Victor sets out to reconquer his own body.
He swims in the ice to jumpstart his immune system, skydives to overcome his fear of heights, runs one of the world’s most difficult races to build his stamina, survives in the wilderness to reconnect with his own freedom and climbs his first mountain: the Kilimandjaro, the highest peak in Africa.
The series is like Victor’s bucket list - the one he wrote in a hospital bed, when his life hung by a thread. Each episode is a journey, and each journey includes a challenge. Victor explores the world while discovering his own body. More importantly, he uses each of these challenges as an opportunity to meet people. Arctic adventurers, intrepid mountain climbers, scientists, doctors and yogi masters: it’s always the people he meets along the way that drive him forward. This is the story of his quest for a happy and healthy body.
It is the story of one man’s vital need to reconnect with the body he had feared lost forever. Through the sweat, tears and fear, and thanks to those he meets along the way, Victor chases this dream - with his feet and his intellect.
