    The film opens with images of the south of France.

    Axel talks about his passion and his childhood dream: to become a professional pilot.


    Axel is a young driver who is looking to join the world of car racing.

    He has been building a race car for several months with a view to participating in the French championship for the 2017 season.


    Axel discovers the world of competition.

    While he is the outsider, he creates the surprise by beating one by one his opponents.

    Then comes the final against the defending champion where everything will change!


    Following his disappointment in the first round, Axel decided to continue his season by participating in the second round of the championship.

    While his rival of the previous round eliminates one by one his competitors, the two pilots will again face each other for the final.

    Something crazy is going to happen...


    The young driver is troubled but nevertheless, he decides not to let himself go and bounces back by taking the decision to return to the origins of the discipline, and by going to practice with the best drift drivers on the planet: in Japan!

  6. ARENA

    Strengthened by his teaching with the greatest Japanese masters, Axel decided to expand his objectives.

    He decided to enter the European Championship, considered one of the most difficult in the world.


    After his recent victory, Axel is off to compete in the mountains!

    They are known to be particularly dangerous:

    A single mistake, a single error, and the risk is to see your car completely destroyed!


    Axel continues his season and participates in a new event of the European championship, this time in Switzerland.

    He has to fight a duel against his best friend: Ben Vavasseur.

    A memorable duel between the two friends that highlights the spirit of brotherhood and mutual support between the pilots.


    The end of the season arrives and axel decides to participate in the mythical event of "pipay" in the French Alps.

    It is a great gathering where the best pilots compete and offer a spectacular show, facing nature.


    Last round of the championship, Italy will offer the place of the ultimate confrontation to determine who will be crowned champion.

    At the cost of multiple efforts, and at the end of his strength, Axel will once again measure himself against the drivers of the championship to try to keep his place of leader.


    The people close to Axel tell us about him, about the adventure it is to follow him every day.

    We learn how much the victory is linked to the people who are close to him.

    His path is the story of an ordinary man who tries to escape from a future that is all set.
