Life isn't easy for Aylin, a Muslim girl growing up in the German-Turkish community. Following the death of her mother, she spends most of her time looking after her little brother while her father struggles to keep the family afloat. After another bout of bullying at school, Aylin responds violently and lands herself in trouble with the law. The community service she is given at a horse stable on the outskirts of town is her last chance. Initially still fraught with anger, Aylin gains confidence after she meets the wild Icelandic stallion Hördur, setting her on a path to self-discovery. But as she discovers her hidden passion, Aylin is disheartened by her father's cultural disapproval. Can she build a bridge between both worlds? www.hoerdur.de
