Plot Summary: Winner of the Audience Award at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.

"Your horse is a mirror to your soul, and sometimes you may not like what you see. Sometimes, you will." So says Buck Brannaman, a true American cowboy and sage on horseback who travels the country for nine grueling months a year helping horses with people problems.

"Buck," a richly textured and visually stunning film, follows Brannaman from his abusive childhood to his unusual approach to horses. A real-life "horse-whisperer," he eschews the violence of his upbringing and teaches people to communicate with their horses through instinct, not punishment. Buck possesses near magical abilities as he dramatically transforms horses and people with his understanding, compassion and respect. In this film, the animal-human relationship becomes a metaphor for facing the daily challenges of life. A truly American story about an unsung hero, "Buck" is about an ordinary man who has made an extraordinary life despite tremendous odds.
