Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl star as legendary Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda respectively in this biographical drama set during the 1970s, at the peak of their heated rivalry. Both on the track and off, Hunt (Hemsworth) and Lauda (Bruhl) couldn't have been more different. Yet as much as Englishman Hunt's showy public persona clashed with Lauda's reputation for tightly-controlled perfectionism, both men remained bound together by one undeniable fact -- they were both among the best drivers ever to grace the racetrack. When a horrific crash during the 1976 Grand Prix at the Nurburgring nearly claims Lauda's life, however, a grudging respect begins to develop between the two racers as Hunt realizes just how devoted his greatest adversary is to the sport they both love

Manchmal, mit fortschreitendem Alter, rücken Erinnerungen aus der Kindheit stärker ins Bewusstsein als die Erlebnisse des gerade vergangenen Tages. So geht es auch dem alternden Freigeist Konrad Lang (GÉRARD DEPARDIEU), der zusehends alltägliche Dinge vergisst, sich aber immer präziser an seine früheste Kindheit erinnert. Nicht zuletzt aus diesem Grund zieht es ihn auch zurück in den Schoss der Industriellen-Familie Senn, zu der sich Konrad durch die gemeinsam verbrachte Kindheit mit dem gleichaltrigen Thomas (NIELS ARESTRUP) zugehörig fühlt. Thomas' Mutter, das resolute Familienoberhaupt Elvira Senn (FRANÇOISE FABIAN), gewährt Konrad zwar Unterkunft, reagiert jedoch zunehmend beunruhigt und ablehnend auf Konrads Erinnerungen. Verwundert beobachtet Simone (ALEXANDRA MARIA LARA), die junge Gattin des Familienerben, die wachsende Nervosität der Familienangehörigen. Sie fühlt sich zu dem verwirrten Alten hingezogen, während der Rest der Familie sich kühl distanziert. Als Simone auch noch damit beginnt, das Puzzle aus Konrads Erinnerungen zusammen zu setzen, ahnt sie nicht, dass sie damit einem lebensgefährlichen Geheimnis auf der Spur ist ...
