Wind Horse

Despite being in his dream career, Selim, a famous jockey, finds himself questioning his lost enthusiasm for the racing business, which he compares to a graveyard. Osman, a former regional horse racer, is taming a wild horse he caught in the hills of the village where he lives. He earns a living as a shepherd and raises his sons, Emre and İbrahim, with his own principles. Fourteen-year-old İbrahim, who is to enter his first race with this horse, represents the past Selim had as a shepherd boy.
