LIGHTNING FALLS BEHIND
Sole and Ana make a pact: they will never exchange their racing bicycles for a polluting, warm car. Their friends Frank, Gato and Lou are also married to their BMX: nothing is more important than stunts and night-time street races. In Sole’s grandmother’s garden, the girls find some old cars with, in one of the boots, a gruesome find that is a wake-up call. While they realize a secret dream by using one of the cars as an ‘Uber’ taxi, their friendship is also put to the test.
