A film by Benjamin Marquet

In a small village near Paris, 14-year-old boys and girls enter the training center for future lads and jockeys. For these young pupils, the transition between the family environment and this new world is brutal. Though sharing the world of teenagers — flirting, cell phones and PlayStation — they enter a world where the comfort of the horses comes before that of the human.

This documentary film tells the story of Steve, Florian and Flavien during their first year of apprenticeship. It leads to Flavien’s first race, which officially puts him in the restricted world of jockeys.

An excellent documentary. —French Cinema Now
