Ken Carter is a Canadian daredevil driver who spent five years preparing a rocket-powered car so he could launch the car from a ramp and literally soar across a mile-wide section of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Due to the undeniably off-beat nature of Carter's fixation, director Robert Fortier found financial backing to spend five years documenting Carter's preparation -- a bit unusual in itself. As the engines finally gun, the rockets light, and the car takes off, Fortier may have the additional problem of making a documentary about a wash-out.
