A riding champion with a promising future, Lucie sees her life turn upside down overnight. The young woman is hit by a car and loses the use of her legs. It’s the end of a dream. Lucie loses everything: her hopes for a medal, her special relationship with her father who has always trained her, but above all, her unique bond with Saphir, her horse.

What the press thinks …
According to Télé Star:
“A touching story, led by a fragile and fair Laëtitia Milot.” 3.5 / 5
According to Télé Loisirs:
“A touching story, which speaks of love, but above all of resilience.” 3.5 / 5
According to Télé 7 jours:
“In this moving TV movie, Laetitia Milot gives a beautiful lesson in life. The story is also well served by Antoine Duléry, Cristiana Reali and François Vincentelli. Too bad, however, that the disagreements between the parents of the heroine are a little overplayed and serve traditional clichés of the protective mother and the demanding father. ” 3/5
According to Télé Z:
“A love story sewn with white thread. Laëtitia Milot and François Vincentelli fit together wonderfully.” 3/5
According to Cable Sat TV:
“This tragic story, very predictable and didactic, is to be reserved for fans of Laëtitia Millot who sincerely plays a difficult character.” 2.5 / 5
According to Télérama:
“This telefilm confronting high-level sport and disability could have been captivating. But from the outset this two-part production is drowned in liters of good feelings. (…) Even the obvious sincerity of Laëtitia Milot, in the score of the young woman who finds the path of life, is not of size to fight against that. ” 1.5 / 5
