The connection Indigenous people share with horses is spiritual and incredibly special. Their history is deeply rooted in traditional ways of life. This film offers thrilling portrait of a young Siksika woman and the deep bonds between her father and family in the golden plains of Blackfoot Territory in Alberta as she prepares for one of the most dangerous horse races in the world…on bareback. A sport for the truly brave, Logan Red Crow is an Indian Relay rider who vaults from horse to horse in short, exhilarating races. She is a champion in the making. Besides her skill and sheer grit, Logan has a loving family, an elite group of horses, and a home on her ancestral lands. Those are invaluable, but this rider will need more for victory. This film offers the dual pleasures of serenity and suspense: lyrical immersion in rural life alternates with thrilling race footage. As she pushes toward her goal, the connections between animal and human, family and community, ancestral tradition and contemporary life are profound and lasting - VIFF.

In English, Siksika, and Blackfoot with English subtitles.

Genre: documentary.
