Travriket/The Track

A film about hope and luck around a little race track in Värmland, Sweden.

Everyone around the track is dreaming about winning, even if the chances are slim. Elisabeth is hoping to win with an unusual strategy. The trainer Nils–Ola and his daughter Rebecca are at crossroads. Should they continue or wind up their stable?
Nils-Ola has not after years of grind managed to get a star horse. Should Rebecca continue or should she move on? The horse owner Svante found his star in Millan after a life of searching. Now is Millan old and Svantes biggest wish is to bring up a new winner.
