After a run-in with the law, Aylin – a 17years old muslim girl, part of the Turkish diaspora – finds herself sentenced to community service at an out of town horse stable in Germany. Beset by troubles at home and school, it is here that she, despite all odds, is set on the road to self-discovery. As the pace quickens, her blossoming relationship with the stallion Hördur and her fledgling dreams are tested to the breaking point. Can Aylin build a bridge between worlds? And if she can, will others follow? Hördur is a film about the magic of riding horses and accompanies the rebellious Aylin on her way to a self-confident and self-determined life.
