The Real Mo Farah
You may think you know Sir Mo Farah, a National treasure, a Somali-born British hero of the London 2012 Olympics, and one of the most successful athletes in history. In this deeply personal and emotionally powerful film, he will reveal the truth about his early life for the first time and explore the extraordinary story he has kept hidden until now. His journey will take him from his family home in Surrey to the streets of West London and the school where he was first spotted as a phenomenal young athlete. He’ll travel back to his family village in Somaliland to ask his mother and twin brother what they know of the traumatic childhood event that changed his life forever. Finally, he will turn to the Somali community in London in the hope that they can explain the mystery at the heart of his life.
