A close-up portrait of a rebellious racecar-driving teen coping with the twists and turns of life in rural Hungary.
The young rebel, Ricsi, lives his life on the edge. ‘Trouble’ is his middle name. He is unruly, restlessly scaring up problem after problem. Driving cars without a license, theft and escaping from the cops are all just a part of his daily routine much for his parents' despair. Ricsi won't stand for routines nor the expectations of his deadbeat father. Afterall, where was he when Ricsi needed him the most?
DRIFTER was shot over a period of five years and is a portrait of a unique young man who takes life in his own hands.
