Plot summary

"Back in 1996, John was proudly riding bareback on his horse among the dreary apartment blocks of Ballymun - a suburb outside of Dublin. We meet him as a 16-year-old school dropout through glimpses of archive material from the past. Now, 20 years later, John looks back at himself and his own history, as he is also focusing on transferring the proud legacy of horses to his firstborn son who is soon to become a 16-year-old himself." (the production company's synopsis)
