Based On One Hell Of A True Story

In `60s New Zealand, at the bottom of the world, Burt Munro takes a 1920 Indian motorcycle and, delightfully without resources other than his own obsession and a Kiwi #8 wire mentality, spends his retirement rebuilding the bike and following his dream to go to Speed Week at Salt Lake in Utah. Under funded, without the support of a team and against all the odds he not only makes it to Bonneville, he sets a world land speed record, not once, but again and again.

A really inspiring movie that shows it doesn't matter how young or old you are, if you set goals and have a dream, you can achieve that no matter what the circumstances. Would highly recommend this movie to anyone.
