The greatest reward for an avid smoker is nicotine. To get some of it an addicted biker tries to win an irrational race – a race that is being held in the tracks of a vicious circle and in which even the audience participate in malicious ways. A darkly humorous film on steroids that creates an intense dynamics by its astute use of a fast-paced and bold soundtrack, the simplicity of its lines and the sinuous movement of its colours.
