The investigation into the death of their daughter, crushed by a driver, stops due to a lack of police goodwill. Tony doesn’t want to drive anymore. Moving south to start a new life is his only option. But Marie expels her anger on the speedway in violent crashes. Helped by the Lynx Team, she finds the driver.
