Can love outrun a fast car? A former speed demon and rumrunner, now an aging mechanic in a sleepy Catskill Mountains town, risks it all — his health, his security, even the love of his life — when he vows to restore and race the prized car of his wild youth, a 1968 Ford Mustang that’s been hidden away for 35 years. Now a self-described “old man in an old car,” Mike Ondish wants to chase racing glory one last time, hoping to rekindle the spark in his relationship, and rediscover the thrill of a fast car and the wide-open road. But will his quest to restore the car, bolt by bolt, as a tribute to Carroll Shelby (the racing legend who gave the Mustang its muscle) restore him?
Or will a love triangle between Mike, his girlfriend Martha and the Demon lead him to crash and burn?
