Tyson’s Run: Release Date, Cast, and More

Good hearty family dramas strike chords of nostalgia and warmth in all of us. To watch this genre guarantees a relaxed and happy time with your loved ones.

Though this genre focuses on the core of families and their relationships, it may also reflect on conflicts within the household, sometimes addressing grave issues like incest or violence. 

With Tyson’s Run, the warmth oozes out as we relate to the storyline and end up rooting for the underdog. Of course, you must be wondering as to what the story is all about. So without further ado, let’s bring it on!

The Plot- What to Expect From the Movie

Tyson’s Run is a brilliantly woven story, with superb cinematography. It revolves around a 15-year-old Tyson, who suffers from autism. He is experiencing his firsts at a public school where he has been enrolled recently.

Tyson also helps his father clean up after the football team, late in the afternoon.  It is during this time that Tyson meets Aklilu, a champion marathon runner. The two become fast friends.

Yet, the story becomes truly inspirational when Tyson decides to follow Aklilu’s lead to race in a marathon himself. Despite all the odds, the decision Tyson makes is an attempt to please his Dad and to win approval for himself.

Over the years, we have seen quite a few movies which center on disease syndromes like Disney’s “McFarland: the USA’ and ‘Wonder’.

These films celebrated the achievements hailing from people’s tremendous efforts, yet what Tyson’s Run offers is different from the rest. It showcases how sports can bring a positive impact on your personality besides your health.

Now, if a person having a syndrome like autism manages to overcome all odds to achieve their purpose, the impact the story has on us is inspirational. 

The Tagline for the movie is: “Overcoming the odds is as simple as taking the first step”.

When Will the Film Be Released?
