Roman (Matthias Schoenaerts) is a convict in a prison in rural Nevada, struggling to escape a violent past. As part of his rehabilitation, he's assigned to a state-mandated "outdoor maintenance" program, where he's spotted by a no-nonsense veteran horse trainer (Bruce Dern). With the help of an outgoing fellow inmate and trick rider (Jason Mitchell), Roman is accepted into the selective wild horse training section of the program—and his work to train an especially unbreakable mustang may just help him find his own humanity.
"It's worth seeking out... as both a portrait of a prison program few are aware of and a powerful character study." --ReelViews
