"26.2 TO LIFE" explores the transformative power of San Quentin State Prison's 1000 Mile Club, in which incarcerated runners are coached by elite volunteer marathoners throughout the year to run in an annual marathon that takes place entirely behind the walls -- 105 grueling laps on the prison's lower yard. The film follows the men off the make-shift track and into the cellblock as they navigate getting an education, family relationships, and finding purpose, all while knowing they may never see life on the outside again.
