A young horse trainer tries to win the favour of a new arrival who has not yet developed trust in her due to its young age. At the same time, the owner of the stable assigns her the task of training a new colleague. Just like an animal, it is not easy for a human being to find her way in an unfamiliar situation, and the main protagonist seems to suddenly enter a vicious circle of her own uncertainties and limitations. A story about competition, communication problems and the fear of being replaced.
