A charming portrait of Frank Stephenson, one of the most important and influential car designers in the world, whose creations range from high-concept hypercars such as the McLaren P1 to everyday city vehicles such as the iconic new Mini.
This unique film tells the colourful and nomadic story of Frank’s life, from Morocco in the 60s to Istanbul and Spain, exploring his love for cars and his dynamic relationship with his father. Frank’s infectious personality guides us through his creative process, revealing his talent, his love for his pet dogs, his enthusiasm, passion, humour and his obsession with good design. By revisiting the places which shaped Frank and his designs, the film is structured as a journey of rediscovery, told alongside a new journey as he embarks upon his most ambitious project to date, a new age of mobility with Lilium’s electric VTOL flying taxi.
