Learning to ride a horse helps 17-year-old Aylin face the challenges in her life in this moving and inspiring drama about self-discovery.
Aylin, a German-Turkish teenager, is caught between worlds. At home, still mourning her mother’s death, she is the caretaker for her younger brother and father, who is thinking of moving the family back to Turkey. At school, she is tormented by bullies. When she fights back and injures one of the chief bullies, Aylin is sentenced to community service at a horse farm where the work is hard and her boss is strict.
At the farm, Aylin is magically drawn to Hördur, a wild Icelandic horse that is not allowed to return to its homeland. Although her request to ride Hördur is initially denied, when she finally gets permission to ride him, Aylin discovers that she has both the talent and passion for horseback riding. But her father does not consider horseback riding appropriate for his daughter. Can Aylin develop the self-confidence to pursue her newfound dream?
