QFF Fall 2018
Current project status:
Hadi is a young uneducated man that finds his respect in horseracing as a jockey. After much mockery by his more experience colleagues, he is given an older grey Arabian horse to train, Amer, with an unknown – and therefore unrespect – pedigree. Hadi and Amer’s will is challenged and must break through many barriers of jealousy, greed, and bad fate, to prove everyone that nothing is impossible for a willing heart.
