Lata Kare: The 68-year-old who ran to save her husband

Lata Kare, 68, did not know that running was a sport - nor that it could earn her any money.

But when her husband fell ill and needed an MRI scan that the couple couldn't afford, Ms Kare, who lives in India's western Maharashtra state, found a way they could pay for it. The decision would completely change her life - and inspire a feature film.
