Based on the true story of Jann Mardenborough (Archie Madekwe), the film is the ultimate wish fulfillment tale of a teenage Gran Turismo player whose gaming skills earned him a spot in a Nissan trial to find someone could become a real race car driver.

Mardenborough manages to win a series of competitions to become an actual professional race car driver. However, driving a real race car is much harder than any of the participants anticipate, losing their ability to make mistakes. In a video game when you make a mistake you reset, in real racing when you make a mistake you could die.
