Do you remember the last time you had to sit through a gruelling hour and a half of bad cinema just because it was a movie about cars? Gearheads are often denied the simple pleasures of a good story and compelling performances. Yet, there are tales of glorious cars and legendary drivers littered throughout the history of motorsport. Following are tales of ambition, passion and tragedy, which artfully demonstrate the love of man and machine.

Max is an LA cabbie with dreams of running his own limousine business, one day. Tired after a full day’s work, he picks up a sharply-dressed gentleman, Vincent, who offers him $600 to drive him to five locations through the night. Initially reluctant, Max is eventually swayed. As things suddenly get out of hand at the first of the five stops, Max finds out that Vincent is a hitman on a mission to murder five targets. But by now, there’s a body in the trunk of his car and he is left with no option but to carry on driving.
