As a child did you dream of designing and building your own racing car, but you always thought it was an unachievable goal?
Yes, it is possible! Every year, the Squadra Corse, a team composed of about 40 students of the Polytechnic University of Turin, designs and builds a racing single-seater, defying other university teams on race tracks around all of Europe. This documentary describes a season spent with the team from the point of view of three students. It is a tale about a project to achieve, the passion for engines, the desire to win, a working team that gradually becomes a group of friends, but also about the struggles, the failures, the disagreements and the difficulties of people who are facing for the first time a big challenge.

A touching and exciting experience, that turns young students into adults, overcoming the usual prejudices on “women and cars” and on “the youngsters these days”. A run until the last race, when something that never happened in the history of the team takes place…
