Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 10/11/1996
"...A modest sleeper with more heart than all the MIGHTY DUCKS movies combined....The feel-good ending doesn't seem phony. It feels deserved."
Variety - 03/25/1996
"...The ensemble of kids is actually quite compelling. The picture is well cast with bright new faces and seasoned vets..."

Product Description:

Halle Berry (MONSTER'S BALL) stars in this inspirational adventure in which a group of low-income, under-achieving Hawaiian students are inspired by their new science teacher to design a solar-powered car for a local competition. Their determination ultimately lands them in Australia in a 2,000 mile race across the Outback.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on a true story, this film is set in Hawaii, where a new schoolteacher attempts to jumpstart her lazybone students by suggesting they enter a science fair. The pupils agree, and build a makeshift solar-powered car. But the kids set their sights beyond the science fair, and enter a regional solar vehicle race, which they win. Now the students are en route to Australia for the 2,000 mile championship race -- against stronger, better, professional cars that have corporate sponsors. Can the plucky teens beat the odds and win with their homemade car'
