With no money, no help from her father (Colm Meaney) and only her fiery determination to build a go-kart in time to compete in a championship race, 11-year-old Mary braves torment from her peers to dream beyond her poor community in Northern Ireland. Rowan O’Neill writes and André F. Nebe directs this heartwarming family drama that co-stars Susan Lynch as Mary’s disapproving mother, Tom Collins and Diarmuid Corr. This film has been an audience favorite at film festivals around the world including the 2011 Tumbleweeds Film Festival for Children and Youth.
