Seventeen-year-old Francie Martinez rides with one of the best equitation trainers in the country, and works as a groom to pay her way. For as long as she can remember, she's dreamed of winning the Maclay finals in Madison Square Garden the most prestigious horse event in the country for this age group and now that it's her last year to compete, the pressure is really on. But just when Francie needs to focus more than ever, the arrival of a new student at the barn upsets the careful balance she's created for herself, and soon she's not so sure if winning is really all that important, much less the point.
