Crack, portrait of a jockey


In the popular harness racing world of the Nord region of France, the jockeys are the labourers of a spectacle that the racegoers support modestly with their meagre revenues. Harness racing is their opium, a way of existing. Jeremy, former star jockey, finds himself with the mission of producing some winning tickets for these men who sacrificed themselves to help him pay for his animal.

When he replaces Denis as the head of the stable, Jeremy will have to choose: to maintain tradition and loyalty or race new horses to satisfy his ambition, even if it means challenging the contract he signed with his father-in-law.
