This documentary looks at horse training and racing in Ireland, focusing on the athletic equines even more than the humans who work with them. Director Liz Mermin profiles three horses -- all with different personalities, strengths and weaknesses -- and shows how they interact with their trainer, Paul Nolan, a veteran in the racing field. Much of the film addresses the unique bond between horses and humans, and explores why so many people find the animals to be so fascinating.
