Check out the trailer above for Turbo Kid, which is set to debut at the Sundance Film Festival.

Turbo Kid is directed by Anouk Whissell, François Simard and Yoann-Karl Whissell (RKSS) starring Laurence Leboeuf, Michael Ironside, Munro Chambers, Aaron Jeffery, Edwin Wright and Romano Orzari.

Anne-Marie Gélinas, Ant Timpson, Benoit Beaulieu, Tim Riley and Jason Eisener are onboard Turbo Kid as producers.

Synopsis:

In a post-apocalyptic future a young solitary scavenger obsessed with comic books must face his fears and become a reluctant hero when he meets a mysterious girl. From horror masterminds Ant Timpson (The ABCs Of Death 1 & 2, Housebound) and Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun).

In a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, an orphaned teenager called The Kid scavenges the Wasteland searching for relics from a better time (the 80s). During one of his expeditions he meets Apple, a mysterious girl with a rather large secret. As their relationship deepens, they accidentally run afoul of Zeus, the self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland. Zeus, a sadistically droll maniac who murdered The Kid's parents, now controls the Wasteland's most precious commodity: fresh water. When Zeus' gang kidnaps Apple, The Kid joins forces with Frederick, the laconic leader of the legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo-charged weapon, The Kid must fulfill his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents' death and get the girl of his dreams.
