This film tells the story of 16-year-old Nika, whose biggest wish in life is to race a go-kart. She’s inspired by her father, who was a professional racing driver that died in a car accident. Her mother is afraid that after death of her husband she will lose her only daughter. Her mother’s prohibition of Nika attending go-kart races has the opposite of the desired effect. Nika neglects school, hides her problems from her mother and starts secretly practicing racing despite her mother's ban. When her father’s best friend Nani tells Nika that he’ll help her get into the Adriatic Cup race if she finishes the school year, Nika accepts the proposal.
