Au début des années 1960, la Ford Motor Company connait des problèmes financiers. Henry Ford II met alors la pression à ses employés pour trouver des solutions. Lee Iacocca suggère alors de relancer la marque dans l'univers de la compétition automobile. Il est alors envisagé que Ford rachète Ferrari. Mais la rencontre avec Enzo Ferrari tourne au fiasco et c'est finalement Fiat qui signe l'accord. Le « Commendatore » est même très insultant envers la marque américaine et son patron, Henry Ford II. Ce dernier, piqué au vif, en fait une affaire personnelle. Ford décide alors de faire appel à Carroll Shelby, le seul américain vainqueur des 24 Heures du Mans (en 1959). Il est chargé de construire une voiture capable d'anéantir la suprématie de Ferrari pour les 24 Heures du Mans 1966. Carroll Shelby va ainsi développer la Ford GT40 Mk II avec l'aide de Ken Miles, un pilote au caractère bien trempé qui ne plait pas trop au sein de Ford.

For the finale of their first show, they declare they will rob a bank, and invite audience member Étienne Forcier, an account holder at the Crédit Républicain de Paris, to do it. Forcier is apparently teleported to his bank in France, where he activates an air duct that vacuums up the money and showers it onto the Las Vegas crowd. Upon the discovery that the money really is missing from the bank vault, FBI agent Dylan Rhodes is called to investigate the theft and is partnered with Interpol agent Alma Dray.

Repérée à l‘âge de 14 ans par un photographe à la sortie de son école New-Yorkaise, Sara Ziff, devient très vite un top model à succès. De photos chics en défilés, d’un avion à l’autre, entre New York et Paris, Londres et Milan, elle croit vivre un rêve éveillé. Avec son ami Ole Schell, cinéaste, elle se livre à un jeu innocent : filmer l’envers du décor. Petit a petit, voilà que "Picture Me", chronique de 5 années de défilés et fashion weeks, devient plus sombre et inattendu. La caméra vole des instants de vérité crue, et lève le voile sur un monde moins glamour qu'il n'y paraît. Bientôt pas une journée ne se passe sans que Sara ne se demande : "Jusqu’où suis je prête à aller pour l'argent et le succès ? Jusqu'à quand vais-je tenir ?"
