Barely recovered from a near-fatal accident, young bronco rider Brady (Brady Jandreau) is torn between pursuing his career in rodeo despite the doctor’s advice or quitting while he still can. Using non-professional actors (and real-life riders) to play semi-fictionalised versions of themselves, Zhao’s sophomore film is an affectionate slice of Americana that premiered at last year’s BFI London Film Festival.
