2009 – In a barn in Oklahoma, wing commander Scotty Wilson (USAF) starts building the replica of a racing plane designed in the 1930s by Ettore Bugatti et Louis de Monge, the Bugatti 100P. After 80 years, Scotty wants to be the one to fly with the most elegant plane ever imagined. Louis de Monge’s grand nephew goes to meet him and embarks upon the adventure. The past crops up bit by bit, mixes up with the present with the actors of the time. The strain increases with the imminence of the first flying.
