Young Brady Jandreau, a real rodeo horseman, plays a fictionalized version of himself in this powerful, confident drama that breathes fresh prairie air as it creates an authentic and moving portrait of life on South Dakota’s Sioux community.
After a nearly tragic riding accident, Brady (Brady Jandreau), once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is warned that his competition days are over. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady draws on his bond with horses as he forges a new identity as a professional horse trainer and redefines his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.
