Profile of Father Neil Horan, the Irish priest who ran across the racetrack at the 2003 British Grand Prix at Silverstone then bundled Marathon runner Vanderlei De Lima in the crowd during the 2004 Olympic Games.

The film follows this difficult and eccentric character on his one man mission to tell the world of the second coming of Christ and the ultimate destruction of most of mankind through the art of Irish dance.

Reel London, an initiative for artist film-makers and emergent documentary film-makers, was produced by DFG Films, in partnership with Film London and ITV London.
