Jo lives in the shadow of his older brother Thomas, with whom he shares a passion for underground street racing in their Lavalois neighborhood. One evening, the teenager secretly takes place in a race, even though he doesn't have a driver's license or any money. When he loses, the boy panics, fleeing the scene without paying the winner. In retaliation, the winner and his gang vandalize Thomas' car. Furious, Thomas forces his brother to repay the repair costs and challenges the winner to a double or nothing race. Meanwhile, Jo and his best friend get charged with petty theft when he tries to get money to pay Thomas.
