A notorious initiator of unsuccessful business ventures, Paul lives in a garage between a trading estate and a furniture centre. Since his wife left him, he has not seen his son Niki very often. One day during a weekend visit, the two of them get hold of a racing go-cart, just to take a few rides around.
They quickly develop a taste for it. Together with the grumpy shopkeeper Karl, whom they exploit as a sponsor, they set out to roam from race to race during the summer holidays. It soon becomes fairly obvious that they don′t have a chance. But Paul is far too stubborn to give up easily.
