In the heat of a financial crisis, a hardworking businessman must struggle with his responsibilities at work and his role as a single father. The younger of his two boys boasts about a dream of racing professional stock cars when he grows up. The older sibling passes it off as a mere fantasy, simply because no one in the family has ever been involved in any form of motor sports. Despite ridicule and skepticism that seems to accompany every mention of his ambitions, the boy chooses persistence over a defeated attitude. As a child, this seems relatively simple to him, but as the road to victory steadily becomes more difficult to travel, patience grows thin and even he begins to have his doubts.
