A beautiful voyage of discovery across America, Lean on Pete
is the story of a boy and his horse that sweeps across rundown racetracks,
hostile city streets and vast open prairies to tell a wider tale of life in
modern America. Based on Willy Vlautin’s acclaimed novel, 15-year-old Charley
arrives on the edges of Portland, Oregon with his single father - both eager
for a fresh start after a series of hard knocks. While Ray descends into
personal turmoil, Charley stumbles on a local racetrack where he lands a job
with gruff trainer Del caring for an ageing quarter horse called Lean on Pete.
When Del earmarks Lean on Pete for the slaughterhouse, Charley is driven to
extreme measures to spare his new friend’s life and search for a new home.
Adventure and heartbreak aplenty - a dusty and dazzling American dream.
