Fuel is a drama directed by Oktay Ortabasi. Emelio (Michael Esparza) believes his problems in life would be solved if he could win a college scholarship through his talents on the track field. His dream is to escape working at the gas station owned by his brutal step-father, Frank (Billy Maddox). Emilio would also like to help his girlfriend, Sandy (Briana Freehan) get away from her problems as well. The two share a life long dream of leaving the dead-end town together. There is one problem that stands in the young couple's way. Emilio has a horrible temper that lands him in trouble time and time again. His violent temper is a result of an accident when he inhaled a harmful amount of gas fumes as a boy. Though Emilio remains hopeful that they can escape the drudgery of their lives, his dream life with Sandy seems to be slipping away beyond reach.
