Set in modern Turkey, The Horse is a compelling story of a father and son's struggle agains desperate poverty and hardship to earn enough money so that the boy can go to school.

Director Ali Ozgenturk's sensitive, complex interweaving of these characters' problems against the realistic background of poverty and desperation proved so unsettling that the Turkish government sent him to prison for making this film.
