It's the 1980s and rally driver Shane Hunter faces an arduous comeback from an injury into one of the most hellish racing circuits in history: Group B (hence the short film's title). Group B is considered by many as the golden era of rally racing because the regulations allowed for some of the fastest and most powerful rally cars ever built. Unfortunately this also caused some of the most vicious accidents (many of which were fatal) and eventually led to a short-lived era that was scaled back for more safeguards and regulations in the Group A circuit.
Undertaken by the National Film and Television School, we're thoroughly excited for this short film to release. More details to come as soon as we get them. Stay tuned.
