Following lead singer Gord Downie's announcement that he was battling incurable brain cancer, iconic Canadian band The Tragically Hip went on a now legendary final tour that won the hearts of the country. Long Time Running gives a unique and exclusive perspective into the challenges and triumphs of that 2016 summer: from diagnosis and the build up to Victoria B.C. to candid behind-the-scenes moments on the road, to electrifying performances of beloved songs and the epic final show in their home town of Kingston Ontario. With rare backstage footage, personal interviews and poignant moments with fans from Heriot Bay to Gros Morne, the film captures both a profound moment for the band and a shared national experience that resonated globally.

Powerfully captures the last weeks on the road. At times really moving when you watch how much the band, and Gord in particular, means to Canadians.
