During its heyday, Formula 1 racing was extremely dangerous. The racers put their lives on the line every time they went out on the track. This documentary examines that period of racing, talking with those who have direct experience of that period and can recount not only how deadly the pastime was but the events that led to the regulations that have made it a more reasonable sport. The history of racing unfolds before the viewer's eyes in vivid detail with crystal-clear reflection by racers who lived the danger themselves.
