GABRIEL

Synopsis

Tom likes to race and he‘s good at it. Go-karting is the only thing in his life that makes him happy. But life is not that simple, even when you’re a kid. Tom is living with his grandparents, since his mother died in a car accident and his father left. Fed up with his overly strict grandfather and his rowdy classmates, he decides to look for his father. At first the journey seems to be ill-fated until he meets Gabriel who proves to be a real friend. Now the journey becomes a great adventure, which the friends will never forget. Sometimes all you need is a guardian angel to show you the way.
