After a riding accident, young cowboy Brady, once a rising star of the rodeo circuit, is told that his competition days are over. He finds himself wondering what he has to live for, when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. Brady tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America. A beautiful, contemplative take on the modern western, told with rare honesty.
