  "Vividly memorable characters infuse this sports documentary with compelling drama." - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Plot: The city of Siena, in the heart of Tuscany, is home to the oldest horse race in the world: The Palio. This documentary captures the intensity of the event and the beauty of Siena. It creates a fascinating portrayal of this secular tradition and recounts the dramatic story of the young jockey, Tittia, who, in search of glory, challenges his shrewd mentor, Trecciolino.
