Rally cars and illegal drugs don’t mix!
Trent and Adam were best friends and racing buddies until an accident, with Adam at the wheel, put Trent in the hospital. After a long separation, the teens try to pick up their friendship, but Adam’s guilt and Trent’s odd behaviour make it tough. Why is Trent hanging around with Marcus, a guy who he can’t stand? And why isn’t his Ritalin working anymore? When Adam discovers Trent is dealing with the dark side, it’s a race to save his friend from himself.
