A young woman with Down syndrome refuses to be defined by disability and takes control of her own life. Her ambition to become a motor mechanic – starting with the apprenticeship promised by her late father – is stalled by her super protective brother who has reluctantly inherited the family workshop/garage business. And it’s not until she teams up with an ex- school friend who needs his car fixed in time to enter the local burnout competition that her plans progress.
