This is the story of François Gissy, who rose above his humdrum destiny by fighting like a madman to live passionately, gain renown, and make every day an adventure by leading a truly epic life.

Gissy was driven by an all-consuming goal: beating every single speed record in the world.

This passionate “rocket man” was ready to do anything to make his dream come true. Our film explores the enduring pull of the Icarus myth and the solitude of an ardent man forsaken by social media.
