Sections & Films


Category: Edition 2012

Alex, twenty years-old, is a young man with a devouring passion for cars. He spends day and night tending to his beloved customized yellow Honda, attending parking lot gatherings, driving and speeding on the freeway. This leaves very little room for his child and girlfriend Rachel. One night on the freeway, Alex accidentally hits a young man and runs. Burdened with guilt after the accident, he is forced to face the mother of the young man.


Alex, vent’anni, è un giovane uomo con una sfrenata passione per le automobili. Trascorre giorno e notte a bordo della sua fuoriserie, una Honda gialla truccata, frequentando raduni di automobilisti e guidando in autostrada a tutta velocità. Tutte queste occupazioni gli impediscono di dedicare tempo alla sua bambina e a Rachel, la sua fidanzata. Una notte, in autostrada, Alex investe inavvertitamente un ragazzo e scappa senza soccorrerlo. Tormentato dal senso di colpa per l’incidente, Alex si vede costretto ad affrontare la madre del ragazzo.
