This authentic and heart-rending film is the story of Brady, a rodeo rider who has just emerged from a coma. Brady is told not to ride again. "Play the cards you are dealt," says his father "let it go." Yet Brady's purpose in life is hitched to riding horses. Also, living in a trailer and eating rabbit soup is not the stuff of champions. In the starlight, around a campfire with friends, listening to his little sister sing simple yet beautiful songs Brady ponders his next moves.

Heavy-hearted cowboys, wild horses and broken dreams: The Rider is a great film about what it means to be a man.
Little White Lies

A story that is heart-wrenching, unfiltered and intimate
