Synopsis

Nicky (28) is a promising amateur motorcycle racer, breathes racing, risking all and putting his life on the line with each race. When followed by a professional team, during the final of a race, Nicky gets involved in a terrible accident.

His recovery is tough and difficult, preventing him to ever race again. Nicky decides to build a new life for himself with a new job and leaves the racing world behind him. But selling his motorcycle is a step too far. He gives it to his nephew Charlie (15), the son of his deceased brother, and encourages him to race in his place.

Nicky revives through Charlie's talent, but does not notice that Charlie can not handle the pressure of competitive racing.
