A teenager has to summer in rural Wisconsin with grandparents he barely knows. His grandfather keeps them busy by restoring an antique race car like the one his dishonored father drove in the 1927 Indianapolis 500, believing it might redeem the old racer. Then the beautiful pianist next door gets in on the action.

Fourteen-year-old Kevin Johnson is forced to summer in rural Wisconsin with grandparents he barely knows while his parents try to salvage their marriage.

Luckily, Grandfather has a busywork project to occupy his time and his thoughts: restoring an antique race car like the one driven by his great-grandfather in the 1927 Indianapolis 500. The finished product might actually help mend their broken family. Kevin also has plans to rendezvous with his girlfriend, but a crisis changes his life forever.
