Attention - A Life in Extremes, which is based on the stories of three extraordinary men, will give an unusual perspective on the conditions and forms of expression that define our modern society. We will follow a wingsuit flyer (Halvor Angvik), a freediver (Guillaume Néry) and an extreme cyclist (Gerhard Gulewicz) in their ambitious struggle to reach the top in their field in the sports world.
They fly along craggy cliffs, dive without oxygen equipment in the depths of the sea and compete during inconceivably exhausting cycling tours. By providing evidence that the human body possess earlier unthought-of abilities, these men rise to the status of modern-day heroes.
These are people, who stand out from the crowd by possessing special skills and extraordinary adventurism as they challenge accepted physical and mental limits. But what makes the heroes do this? What sort of lives do people live, who are at the alleged head of a socially recognized elite?
