The film explores the transitory nature of this underground sport and its relationship to contemporary car culture, the traditions of gypsies and their relationship with horses. The race involve a group of travellers in a rolling roadblock on motorways and dual-carriage, while two trotting horses, with sulkies and riders, run a very fast race lasting a couple of minutes on the road. Bets have been placed, large sums of money exchange hands, travellers come from miles around, the police turn a blind eye.
