In the early 1980s, Pierre Durand gives up a promising career as a lawyer and commits everything to doing what he loves – show jumping. Supported by his father, he puts everything on the line for a young horse that no one really believes in: Jappeloup. Considered too small, too temperamental and too unpredictable, the horse has many flaws, but also possesses remarkable skills. The duo get better and better with each competition and manage to establish themselves in the world of show jumping. But the Olympic Games in Los Angeles end in miserable failure, and Pierre becomes fully aware of his own weaknesses. With the help of his wife, Nadia, and horse groom Raphaëlle, Pierre will win back Jappeloup’s trust and forge a relationship that will take them to the Olympic Games Seoul 1988.
