Koichi is a shy gamer, who is incredibly talented at Esport driving games. A desperate drift team recruits him to replace their driver. Koichi masters real driving and drifting quickly, but can he match up to professional drivers in races of life and death? Thrilling combination of sports and action with beautifully filmed scenes of drifting that make it look as if the cars are dancing gracefully.

Koichi is een verlegen gamer, die heel goed is in E-sport racespelletjes. Een wanhopig drift-team huurt hem in om hun chauffeur te vervangen. Koichi blijkt al snel echt te kunnen racen en driften, maar kan hij zich meten met professionele chauffeurs in races om leven en dood? Een enerverende combinatie van sport en actie, met mooi gefilmde drift-scènes, waarin het soms lijkt alsof de auto’s elegant met elkaar dansen.
