An action adventure movie featuring two Americans and their pink and black Trans Am, Shaker. Struggling to make ends meet, Judd Pierson, once a top racing driver, and his young mechanic friend Casey Lee are in New Zealand touring a one man stunt show. A chance meeting with Dr Christine Rubin provides a means for Judd and Casey to make some quick money. Christine is involved in a top secret operation to smuggle a deadly virus out of the country and into the hands of the CIA. Judd and Casey agree to drive her and her cargo on a high speed race to meet the drop off deadline.

“We were trying within a sort of comic-book, fast-moving style for as much reality as possible, so it was fast- for- fast and stunts-for-real. We were also after a general certificate, so I had much pleasure in expunging most blood, violence (except auto-violence) and overt sex. It made me feel quite wholesome” (Bruce Morrison,1985 London Film Festival programme)
