In this film we follow the photographer Malik Nejmi on a journey through the world of horse-race betting. A world with its own symbols, gestures and rituals; a world in which passion, energy and hope are concentrated in a fraction of a second, but also in seemingly endless waiting.
It’s also a road-movie, a chance to discover a photographer and his world through his own personal story and his perpetual desire to experience new cultures. Malik Nejmi is in search of a face, a hope, a community that shares the same pleasure. A convivial, fulfilling and gripping pastime: betting on horses.
