    • Set in the turbulent world of Formula One Racing, Villeneuve is a story of speed, courage and triumph over adversity. On Track to win the World Championship in 1982, Gilles Villeneuve dies in a terrible crash during a qualifying race. The film starts fifteen years later, in Jerez, Portugal, with his son Jacques preparing to race for the coveted title of World Champion. During these preparations time is suspended, leading us back to the story of his father Gilles, a driver whose skill and daring personified the ideals of Grand Prix racing.
