Buffalo Rider

A miraculous adventure spawns an extraordinary friendship

Jenny, a combative and rebellious teen is headed down a troubled path when her father decides something drastic must be done to save her. Unwilling to speak and feeling isolated in the middle of chaotic Los Angeles, her father intervenes by sending her to Thailand to live with her grandmother. Jenny feels imprisoned in the tiny, remote village until she meets Boonrod, a shunned, peasant boy whose best friend is the family water buffalo. Their unlikely friendship blossoms as the two outcasts team up to save the beloved animal by entering it into a spectacular local contest. This incredible adventure has echoes of “The Karate Kid” and “Seabiscuit,” telling a timeless story of the small and the voiceless battling against all odds. The first feature film to showcase the thrilling sport of buffalo racing.
