Their ultimate prize? The coveted affection of Pearl, a glamorous observation car. But amidst the screech of metal wheels and the roar of engines, a deeper question lingers: can a love story survive in a world obsessed with speed and victory? Will Rusty defy the odds and capture Pearl's heart? Book your tickets to Starlight Express in London and discover the answer for yourself.
