We followed Professor Arne Lungqvist around the world on his missions for three years. We delved into a large number of historical milestones and interviewed eyewitnesses from each and every one. We have been given access behind closed doors and we have asked questions about what is really going on. This is a story that cannot be told without Professor Arne Ljungqvist. He gives a historical view on the scenarios as well as initiated updates on the development of today. We have met with the ones who say yes to doping, and those who spend millions of dollars to fight against it.
A story covering the fight against doping from the cold war in the seventies, to the preparations of the upcoming Olympic games in London in 2012.
But maybe even more – a film asking questions on how you and we should look upon doping, cheating and betrayal.
The narrator introduces us to the ongoing war within sports and outside of it.
