The Rider is an ordinary, hard-working man. Everything he does is done to protect and support his family. He works as a delivery driver for a local Pizza restaurant, which happens to be owned and run by his landlord. The Rider’s wife, Elena, spends her days cleaning grand houses and caring for their two children.
When the Rider’s moped is stolen, his world turns upside down and a race against time starts to recover the source of his livelihood.
The Bike Thief was written and directed by Matt Chambers and features an original soundtrack by Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers.
