He wants to honor his father’s legacy; she wants to prove her father wrong.
18-year-old Jesse is still grieving from the loss of his father to cancer when he learns his mother has lost her job. All too soon, Jesse, his little sister, and his mother might be put out on the streets.
Jesse hears of a local car race sponsored by his father’s nemesis, Shep Bradley, and the prize money might be enough to keep Jesse’s family from losing their home – if he can win it.
When Shep’s own daughter Brooke asks Jesse to build her a racecar against her father’s wishes, Jesse accepts. After all, he needs the money.
