Living with a congenital heart defect, 17-year-old Jana decides she’s had enough — no more doctors, no more surgeries, and no more medication. She lives her life with abandon, which frightens both her parents and her boyfriend, Sami, who want her to undergo an experimental procedure that could save her life. When she meets the reclusive racing trainer, Paul, and the seemingly wild stallion, Rock My Heart, it becomes clear that she is the only one who can work with the sensitive animal. Paul convinces her to enter a prize race with Rock, but, will she be able to ride despite her failing health? The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017 (TIFF Kids) where it won the Audience Award.
