'King Car is chock full of beautiful and crazy sequences; all brought to life by a fantastic cast.' - Bobby LePire, Film Threat

Teenager Ninho is uncertain whether to join the family’s taxi business, preferring instead to support Brazil’s ecological preservation. When his forgotten ability to speak to cars returns, he discovers a government plan to ban old vehicles from the roads. With help from his uncle, an eccentric mechanic, they turn old wrecks into new sleek, sentient ‘King Cars’ that attract a group of cult-like followers, but as events spiral out of control Ninho begins to question the motives of the cars. King Car tackles broad subjects including social injustice, populism, political corruption, corporate greed and climate threat.
