Plot[edit]

Zhang Chi (Shen Teng) dreams of his former life in the racing world while tending to his fried rice stall. He sees a smug younger generation of drivers racing and decides to return to driving. The drama of the plot pivots on Zhang Chi having no car, money or teammates while his driver's license pends re-examination.[3] He wins the rally but crashes and dies. In post credits Zhang Chi races once again with same winning white car, but now against an jet plane and crossing multiple dimensions like his adopted son had asked him before.
