This is the story of Richard Seaman, one of Britain's greatest racing drivers ever. Seaman was almost erased from history when he left British motor-sport and chose to race for the German Mercedes team at the height of the Third Reich. Seduced by the power and discipline of the German racing teams, the allure was so great for Seaman that nothing - neither family nor fear of war - would keep him from the wheel of the fastest cars in the world. It was a fascination so great that, in the end, it cost him his life.
