Yellow

By Alexander Hankoff and Alexander Maxwell | Drama
A race car driver gets a lucrative proposal to crash during the race.

Filmmakers Alexander Maxwell and Alexander Hankoff tell the story of Davy, a chicken farmer by day who races short-track cars on weekends.

As he tinkers with his car, he begins to feel the pressure of losing and seeing his dream slip away. Meanwhile, his up-and-coming mechanic Skip is “killing it” in the micro circuit.

One day, a mysterious sponsor gives Davy an bizarre proposition — he enjoys seeing the sport’s potential for carnage and wants Davy to crash during the race. In return, he’ll buy him a new car, as he wants it.

The next day, Davy walks into the chicken farm and asks his boss Walter for an advance on his paycheck. Walter likes Davy, but thinks he’s wasting his life at the track. So he gives Davy a deal: if he commits to putting in more time at the farm, he’ll pay him more.

As Davy and Skip make adjustments in the garage, Skip asks him if he can race on the big block on Saturday. Davy bluntly says no. But Skip keeps pushing, reminding him of a promise he made.

Later, Davy meets the mysterious sponsor again, who emphasizes that he wants to see his car “reduced to a state of ruin.” No fender-benders. As race day approaches, Davy ponders his options.

Saturday arrives. As Skip does a final check of the car, Davy tell him that he’ll let him race next week.

However, during the race, Davy’s car suddenly comes loose and flips in a horrific crash. He’s rushed to the hospital as Skip stands silent.

In a powerful twist, the next day, the mysterious sponsor tells Skip he looks forward to seeing him race on Saturday.
