Two names - Matt Damon and Christian Bale. An outstanding tandem, telling us the incredible, but real story of a unique collaboration. The American car designer and engineer Carroll Shelby (Damon) has a vision. This vision includes the gutsy driver, born in the UK, Ken Miles (Bale). It is also a vision that doesn’t look possible to come true. Shelby wants to create a revolutionary Ford race car which to beat a Ferrari in a very special competition - The ’24 Hours of Le Mans’ in 1966. Being the world's oldest active sports car race in endurance racing since 1923, this is not for everyone. Shelby and Miles soon realise that it is not only about the mechanical construction of the car, but also about fighting corporative schemes and ultimately, overcoming their own personal barriers.
