Fifty-something former miner Jaroslav whose health has thwarted his lifelong dream to become a racing driver, has found new hope and energy in his new relationship with his school-crush Jitka. She is currently the only active female autocross driver in the Czech Republic and Jaroslav keeps building race cars out of used vehicles for her. Together, they’re hoping for a victory but the frustrations and delusions of the past are never too far away.
