Tripp Coley is a high school senior looking for a way to escape the small town he has lived in for his entire life. Tripp works for Mr. Weathers at a local body shop, which allows him to gather spare parts and scraps and build himself a monster truck. An accident at a nearby oil-drilling site presents him with a strange new friend, a subterranean creature with a taste for speed named Creech. Together, Tripp and Creech form an unlikely bond and help each other in ways they could’ve have foreseen.
