Top of page

The late Ken Carter's long-time obsession to be the world's greatest daredevil is the subject of this feature-length documentary. Seen are the five years of preparation that went into raising one million dollars, building a rocket-powered car, and constructing a ten-storey take-off ramp for his attempt to jump a car across a mile-wide stretch of the St. Lawrence River. A portrait of a stunt driver who made his living by risking his life.
