Dunlops' story is human drama at its most intense

Motorcycle road-racing is a thrilling, addictive and highly dangerous sport. No one knows that better than the Dunlop family from Armoy where two generations have tasted success and sorrow in huge and equal measure. Joey and brother Robert were icons of the sport who lost their lives doing what they loved. Robert's sons William and Michael are continuing the tradition.

Road, the film which captures the thrills and spills of the sport, may do for road racing what Good Vibrations did for Northern Irish music or what Senna did for Formula One motorcar racing. For almost the first time we get to see what drives young men to race around ordinary roads at extraordinary speeds risking everything. Don't miss this movie, for it is human drama at its most intense.
