Set in the rough and tumble world of professional rodeo, this film takes the viewer inside a fascinating, distinctly American subculture. The documentary follows Fred Whitfield, the first African-American All-Around Champion; up-and-coming bull riders Kagan Sirett and Mike Moore; and top-ranked clown, Don - Hollywood-Yates, through a year of uncertainty and danger.
"... Shot entirely on film, this documentary - a rodeo 101 of sorts -introduces us to the players of a sport that is flirting with extinction,even as it tries to move into the modern arena of big business sports entertainment...This well-crafted film allows us to study and admire the grace and will of the many men who earn their living loving what they do. Rodeo, a modern version of a timeless subculture, is a sport that cuts to the heart of our national identity...." from IMDB.com.
