Co-directors Alex Dawson and Greg Gricus make their documentary feature debut with the world premiere of a moving and powerful film about wild mustangs and the men and women who train them. At the heart of the film is the annual Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge in Fort Worth, TX in which 100 trainers (both professionals and amateurs) each set out to train a totally wild mustang in just 100 days. The trainers then show their horses in competition before putting the animals up for public auction.

Deftly balancing the story of a half dozen trainers and their mustangs in locations ranging from the Navajo nation to the Texas range to the rolling hills of New Hampshire, the filmmakers take us from the first uneasy meeting between the trainers and their horses up through the Ft. Worth competition. What starts as a cautious and suspicious relationship evolves into a powerful bond as tight as any love affair. Crafting a portrait of a seemingly bygone America, Alex and Greg highlight a country where the pastoral beauty of the landscape is nearly matched by the compassion of the people who inhabit it. Enjoy the ride.
