TRIGGER

TRIGGER

A stirring, profound and dramatic film relating the adventures of eleven-year-old Alise when she encounters a wild horse fighting for its life.

Alise is the world’s biggest coward.  But her real troubles begin when a wild horse crashes onto the neighbourhood’s basketball court. Alise’s best friend, as well as all the other children, expect her to catch and calm the horse.  They believe that Alise knows all there is to know about horses; that she’s an expert rider coaxing horses into taking enormous hurdles. But there’s a catch, and a big one: Alise has lied about everything! And she’s terrified of horses!

There was a time when Alise’s grandfather was an adept horseman who really knew all there was to know about horses. But that was long ago, before he had become an angry old grouch. Besides, what business is it of his when the owner decides to kill the horse?

In this high-paced family film we join Alise in taking her most daring leap of faith –conquering her deepest fears for the sake of saving a doomed horse.

You Only Need a Little Faith to Make the Giant Leap.
