An aging horse jockey attempts to win one last title on a championship horse, but past injuries and age make him question his future in the races. His goals are further complicated by the arrival of a rookie rider claiming to be his son. Jockey is a beautifully timeless tale of a man coming to grips with the realities of aging against the competitive backdrop of horse racing.
