Four performers step onto treadmills in a white-walled Chicago gallery space and work themselves to exhaustion. The treadmills, which are controlled by the artist, power the small group of runners to their physical limit. What starts as a performance in beautiful unison ends in dramatic fashion as the performers struggle to keep up their pace.
