    • Synopsis
    • Two young women are caught up in a struggle of power, temptation and maddening attraction. Emma is a girl who likes to control. When she tries out for the local voltige (horseback acrobatics) team she meets Cassandra, a strong, attractive and vivacious girl. As they get to know each other they share a sense of wicked fun and quickly become best friends. But rapid-fire confusion sets in. Feelings of jealousy, competiveness and sexual attraction have them pushing each other to their limits. Are they in love with each other? Will they pass each other’s constant tests? Who will win the fight for control? When Emma fails to make the team she decides to take matters into her own hands. Facing up to Cassandra in the stables she slams a pitchfork into her leg.
