Clifton Collins Jr. and Molly Parker are part of the new Sony Classics, Jockey. A story of what takes place behind the race track and how the life of a jockey can be very limited.

The Synopsis 

An aging jockey (Clifton Collins Jr. “Star Trek”), hopes to win one last title for his longtime trainer (Molly Parker, “Dead Wood”), who has acquired what appears to be a championship horse. But the years – and injuries – have taken a toll on his body, throwing into question his ability to continue his lifelong passion. And the arrival of a young rookie rider (Moises Arias, “Ender’s Games”), who claims to be his son, and whom he takes under his wing, further complicates the path to fulfilling his dream.
