The Opener at the Drive-In on Thursday, April 15th, is the U.S. Premiere of “One Second Champion” (Hong Kong), directed by Chiu Sin Hang. A loser single father learns that lesson the hard way when he becomes gifted with the power of seeing one second into the future. When his ability is exposed, a boxing buff persuades him to use his power in the ring. Can a second mean the difference between life and death?
