In ‘The Eight’ we focus on the volunteers who organise the yearly cycle race ‘The Eight of Chaam’. This documentary reveals the story of a fading village culture and the daily battle to let ‘The Eight’ survive. A film about love for sports and the resilience and willfulness of a small village, somewhere in the south of the Netherlands.
