Drifter

 
A close-up portrait of a rebellious racecar-driving teen coping with the twists and turns of life in rural Hungary. The young rebel, Ricsi, lives his life on the edge. “Trouble” is his middle name. He is unruly, restlessly scaring up problem after problem. Driving cars without a license, theft and escaping from the cops are all just a part of his daily routine, much to his parents’ despair. Ricsi won’t stand for routines nor the expectations of his deadbeat father. After all, where was he when Ricsi needed him the most?
