Synopsis

Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson wants a home, food on the table and a high school he can attend for more than part of the year. As the son of a single father working in warehouses across the Pacific Northwest, stability is hard to find. Hoping for a new start they move to Portland, Oregon where Charley takes a summer job, with a washed-up horse trainer, and befriends a failing racehorse named Lean on Pete.
Adapted from Willy Vlautin’s acclaimed novel 'Lean on Pete'.
