Sean Racer used to be an energetic wildcat youth hooked on cycling. Now he's an overweight, 40-something tax inspector on the brink of a personal crisis. Turning to Claude, an oddball sage like ex-pro cycle mechanic, and encouraged by the wily Linda, a serial tax evader keen to distract him from taking a closer look at her books, Sean hatches a plan to get his life back on track and on two wheels. He will fulfill a youthful dream to ride the Tour de France. That's right, he's going the distance, albeit on a bike on rollers in the shed. Will he make it to the finish?
