Synopsis

Sean is a rookie cop, anxious to demonstrate his skills at the wheel. Opportunity knocks as he pursues Jensen, a “getaway driver” (yes, the same trade the lead character in Drive had) who has never been caught. After a frenetic chase, Sean manages to catch him; but his joy won’t last long: it was all a part of Jensen’s plan to get into jail and later escape with another prisoner. His pride now wounded, Sean goes to the veteran Lo, who had tried to get Jensen for years, to draw up a plan to bring down this Fittipaldi. Three years after Accident, its director is back to take our breath away with this potion of speed in its purest state.
