The enthralling documentary travels to Tuscany for a behind the scenes look at the world's oldest horse race, the Palio, where jockeys will do whatever it takes to win _ including taking bribes and fixing races. When upstart jockey Giovanni Atzeni challenges the status quo, including his former mentor Gigi Bruschelli, one of the winningest riders in the race's history, it ignites a battle at the center of an Italian tradition.
