Arriving in a new town, troubled teen Charley (a stand out performance by Charlie Plummer) takes on work at a local racecourse with grizzled trainer Del (Steve Buscemi) and cynical jockey Bonnie (Chloë Sevigny).

But when personal tragedy strikes, Charley embarks upon a journey across the vast, midwest US landscape. The latest film from Andrew Haigh, Lean on Pete is a moving, powerful story of life on the edges of US society and how easy it can be to fall through the gaps.
