    • Synopsis
    • JOSELE runs national and international marathons pushing his daughter MARÍA’s pushchair. She has Rett Syndrome, a highly incapacitating genetic disease that currently has no cure. JOSELE’s objective when crossing a Finish Line is to raise awareness on his daughter’s disease, to let it known that kids with rare diseases exist even though pharmaceutical companies do not research their treatment as they are not economically profitable. María’s mother, MARÍA JOSÉ, and her two siblings: CRISTINA and DANI, complete the story. The documentary narrates a sports journey alongside the situation to which a rare disease subjects a family. With the diagnosis, each member of the family has their role and is affected at some level, be it physical, psychological and/or social. Each one lives their own “pushing the car” to reach the Finish Line.
