What the Snow Brings (Yuki ni negau koto)
A "Banei Race" pits draft horses, whose ancestors were the dobbins, against one another, each pulling a 200-plus pound sledge over various obstacles. These draft horses bend their enormous bodies over and do their best. The film concerns what happens when these horses and a young man, who struggles for the present but still walks towards his future with his family, come together in their lives.
