Country of Origin: United States

Two Costa Rican horses rescued from lives of pain and hardship, two horse trainers, Elsa Sinclair and Andrea Wady are on a mission to understand new beginnings and connection through movement. With a country to cross from the Pacific ocean to the Atlantic ocean, over mountains, through valleys, across rivers, and embraced by Costa Rican jungle, would this shared journey be enough to build trust between horse and human? Could horses from a history such as theirs learn to trust anew?

Director's Statement:

Our journey was to prove that putting emotions in motion smooths the path forward in life...
Pure Life... Pura Vida.
