This film is based on the true story of Pierre Durand and Seoul Olympics-winning horse Jappeloup. At the start of the 1980s, Pierre Durand abandoned a promising legal career as a lawyer and devoted himself into his true passion, showjumping. Supported by his father, he gambled everything on a young horse who no one else had any faith in: Jappeloup. Too small, stubborn and impetuous, he had many faults, but nonetheless had a remarkable jumping ability. From competition to competition, the duo progressed and took the lead in the world of horseback riding.
Presented in French with English subtitles.
