On a family vacation, Angus was so inspired by watching the local children racing each other over vast distances on horseback that he vowed to join them. He trained hard for a year in his native Australia, riding fifteen miles home from school each day. We follow his return to the spectacular straights of Mongolia, in search of a trainer who is willing to take him on.
Horses are the lifeblood of many Mongolian villages and we meet skilled horsemen, and watch as their children race these beautiful animals at breakneck speed. Stunningly shot in HD, this highly acclaimed film follows Angus on a heartwarming and sometimes dangerous journey of discovery where the stakes are high and there can be only one winner.
