His life turns around when he meets 20 year old Roxanne Lockhart (female role), an old crush from whom he met in high school and lures him into the world of Street Racing (Dev likes Roxanne). However, she is the queen of Street Racing . Furthermore, a police officer named Marissa Gianni (another role for a girl) who is against Street Racing is a former social outcast recognizes Dev and is instantly infatuated with him (unknown by the fact that Dev is now a street racer).
