In Nelson, New Zealand, the highlight of the summer is the trolley derby or go-cart race to us on this side of the world! 12-year-old Ben wants more than anything the win the race and beat the class bully Shannon. Although his mother disapproves at first, with sheer determination and the help of friends, he begs and borrows to build a prize-winning go-cart, “The Kiwi Flyer”. With laughs, excitement and tension this is a film for speed fiends, racing fans and all those who champion the good guy.
