An energized ball of retro glee set in a post-apocalyptic version of 1997.
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, the 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.
Fueled by offbeat humor with lashings of action and gore TURBO KID stars the iconic Michael Ironside (STARSHIP TROOPERS, SCANNERS) as Zeus, Munro Chambers (DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION, CRACKED) as The Kid, Laurence Leboeuf (19-2, TRAUME) as Apple, Aaron Jeffrey (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE) as Frederic, Edwin Wright (TOP OF THE LAKE) as Skeletron and Romano Orzari (OMERTA) as Bagu.
“Turbo Kid feels right, looks right, and sounds right, making it boatloads of fun and very entertaining.” — Emilie Black, Cinema Crazed
