GASOLINE-BREATING FAMILY

The Hue family have been practicing Tractor Pulling for three generations. Their device: a tractor inflated with hormones like a war machine whose toughness matches her name "Excalibur". The goal of these family competitors: to tow a trailer weighing several tons over more than 100 meters without breaking their precious engine. The Hue team thus travels through the regions of France, and sometimes well beyond territorial and continental borders, to carry out their passion for this atypical motorsport activity. From Normandy to Brittany, this documentary will immerse you in the heart of a French brotherhood mutually united around the same hobby.
