Chen Yen-Po (Tommy Chen) is a famous Taiwanese ultra-marathon athlete, who became the first ever Asian athlete to complete the 4 Deserts Race Series and achieved the title of World Champion, in 2016.

The documentary "Run for Dream" records Chen Yen-Po’s exciting yet treacherous ten-year journey to become the champion. The film crew documented a fraction of Chen's journey across the globe. Within a short 6 months, they entered into deserts, went up mountains and plowed through snowfields; they trekked as far as the Arctic Ocean and Antarctica.

The film allows audiences to witness Chen’s blood, sweat and tears and his relentless perseverance to continue. It’s a journey filled with love and support from friends and family, and even rival contenders, who displayed frenemy-like brotherhood that made this road to success bittersweet.
