We go on a journey with a German speed trial race-car driver in the golden age of European motor racing. When he sets out on a record breaking run, he ends up someplace he never expected. Inspired by the life and death of German racer Bernd Rosemeyer whose career came to an tragic end when he was killed attempting to regain the land speed record on the Autobahn in 1938.
