It Happened in Athens
A young man from a small Greek village has dreams of running in the marathon in the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896. He begins training and despite arriving too late, he is allowed to run. A beautiful actress announces that she will marry the winner of the race, thinking it will be her aristocratic lover. This, however, only encourages the young man more, who later finds out the actress loves him as well. The race's outcome will surely determine the course of their relationships.
