“Marathon Boy” on HBO tonight


If you’ have HBO, you have the chance to watch what looks like a fascinating (yet heartbreaking) documentary about Budhia Singh who ran 48 marathons by the age of four.

Here’s the synopsis (straight from the film’s marketing folks):

Six years ago, in an impoverished corner of India, an orphanage director and a slum boy captured the imagination of their country. Plucked from obscurity and thrust into the national spotlight, Budhia Singh ran 48 marathons by the age of four, winning thousands of fans and making headlines around the world. But what started as a remarkable rags-to-riches saga morphed into a tale of greed, corruption and broken dreams. The action-packed MARATHON BOY recounts Budhia Singh’s fascinating story when it debuts THURSDAY, NOV. 3 (8:00-9:45 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
