Breaking away (DVD BREAKING YATES 2001)

It’s 1979.Dave is a blue-collar kid in Bloomington, Indiana .He’s just graduated from  high-school , unsure of what’s next for him in life. He wins an Italian bicycle and focusses on all things Italian-language, opera and especially Italian bicycle racing, much to his father’s dismay. He meets a girl, gets roughed up by her boyfriend but gets a chance to prove himself in another way with his biking skills in Bloomington’s bike race, Little 500. The road to growing up and the bike race are equally bumpy with bruises and falls. How will Dave finish?
