Between jealousy and desire, a groom’s obsession takes precedence over its reality. From the paddock to the race track, Johnny prepares the horses to win. He watches the runners defiantly, he whispers a secret to his horse. When the sun goes down, under the canvas of a blue sky, a white mare walks towards him.
