The only certainty fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson (Charlie Plummer) has in his life, is that he must rely on himself. When he and his father move to Portland, Charley hopes to make a fresh start. He finds a job with Del (Steve Buscemi), an experienced horse trainer who earns his money on the races. When Del decides to send a worn-out racehorse called Lean on Pete to slaughter, Charley decides to go on the run with the horse.

> Lean on Pete will be screened in the Louis Hartlooper Complex from 31 May
