A compelling examination of esteemed Formula One driver Niki Lauda and his near-fateful crash at the Nurburgring in 1976. Niki Lauda is regarded as one of the greatest Formula One drivers to ever hit the track, and was the subject of the 2013 Hollywood movie, Rush. The Austrian is a three-time F1 World Champion, having won the trophy in 1975, 1977 and 1984, and is currently the only champion to have driven for both Ferrari and McLaren.

However, his career was almost ended in 1976 when his car was involved in a horrific crash at Germany's Nurburgring. Hannes M. Schalle's engrossing documentary explores the aftermath of Lauda's crash, including his physical recovery and his subsequent comeback, which saw him embraced as a hero. The film also touches on his famous professional rivalry with James Hunt. "We wanted to examine the development of racing between the 70s and nowadays," explains Schalle.
