Dodgem is a film that follows the central character, Dominic From Luton, and his obsession with his own meticulously customised dodgem car. He travels from fairground to fairground throughout the south east of England in a Luton van, dressed in a white leather costume and helmet. Both his costume and the dodgem display icons from yesteryear. When he arrives at each fairground he gets into his dodgem and drives it into the arena where he relentlessly smashes it into the the path of the other dodgems.

Through the central character the film explores the sadness behind nostalgia and the idea that when an individual is living for the past failure is inevitable. The film gives a sense of Groundhog Day, each act constantly repeated but nothing achieved.
