Based on a true story, The Rider stars breakout Brady Jandreau as a once rising star of the rodeo circuit warned that his competition days are over after a tragic riding accident. Back home, Brady finds himself wondering what he has to live for when he can no longer do what gives him a sense of purpose: to ride and compete. In an attempt to regain control of his fate, Brady undertakes a search for new identity and tries to redefine his idea of what it means to be a man in the heartland of America.

"It's difficult to describe the immense weight that descends upon you when you realize you're seeing real Indian reservation cowboys moving through a lightly fictionalized version of their lives." - April Wolfe, L.A. Weekly

"But as wrenching as The Rider can be at times, it's also suspenseful and beautiful - a modern-day Western with a hero who's a real discovery." - Bob Mondello, NPR
