Mater, the run-down tow truck, spends his time scaring the other vehicles with silly pranks. After one of his scares, the police car warns him about the Ghostlight, a mysterious blue orb that haunts the motorway and the local gas station where the cars congregate. On an eerie evening, left all alone, Mater comes face to face to with his fears, getting a taste of his own medicine. This spooky short with some of the much-loved characters of the Cars franchise includes both suspenseful and humorous moments that will delight young audiences.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
