Real rodeo McCoys jump from moving horses, wrestle terrified calves and ride bronco bulls in this fascinating documentary that goes behind the scenes of professional rodeos. The film follows Fred Whitfield (the first African-American All-Around Champion), bull riders Kagan Sirett and Mike Moore, and daring clown Don "Hollywood" Yates over the span of a year, capturing the drama in the arena and the struggle to keep a dying sport alive.
