The World's Fastest Indian is a biographical movie about New Zealand folk hero Burt Munro, who set several land speed records in the 1950's and 60's using his Indian Scout motorcycle.

The film opens with Burt as an eccentric mechanic in Invercargill, New Zealand who is always tinkering on his motorcycle, always attempting to make it go faster. He decides that, as he is not getting any younger, he needs to fulfill a lifelong wish. So, he hops on a cargo ship.

He arrives in America and is immediately beset by big city problems, yet manages to use his affable small-town demeanor to win over people and move forward. He meets a colorful cast of characters, with whom he imparts a bit of himself as they help him along the way.
