story

The Hue Team has been practicing power pulling for decades. Their device: a tractor, inflated with hormones like a war machine, whose toughness is only matched by the name: "Excalibur". Their goal: tow a trailer weighing several tons over more than 100 meters without breaking their precious engine. The Hues thus crisscross the regions of France, and sometimes well beyond territorial borders, to carry out their passion for this atypical motor sport. From Normandy to Brittany, this documentary will immerse you in the heart of a mutually united French brotherhood around a unique hobby.
