This compelling and deeply moving documentary turns the spotlight on Buck Brannaman, the man whose astonishing skill and empathy with horses inspired a bestselling novel and feature film (The Horse Whisperer), but whose traumatic past remained largely unknown. Made to learn cowboy skills such as roping (also known as lasso tricks) from a very early age, Buck was exploited and abused by his violent father who pushed him into showbusiness. His extraordinary gift for communicating with horses stems from his determined recovery from this abuse, a connection that’s sensitively explored here as he continues his work helping "horses with people problems".
