An urban docu western, Keiara is the only female member of the Compton Cowboys and aspires to become the first black female rider to compete in the national rodeo.

Director Statement:

This film is why I became a filmmaker, to tell stories with emotional impact that aim to show a reality with tenderness and love to the most affect. Keiara and all the Compton Cowboys provide a beautiful timely message for all of us. I hope we get to share it with the world with a premiere at a great festival.
