In the barren expanses of the USA live four girls who share a passion: The wild world of the rodeo. As different as their cultural backgrounds may be, they all want to follow in the footsteps of great cowboys. In a cosmos that once belonged only to their fathers and brothers, the girls take their lives into their own hands. Without batting an eyelid, they catch calves and sit on wildly thrashing bulls. Even though the path is often hard and lonely, they have the courage to enter an arena where there is actually no room for them. They want to prove that “you ride like a girl” is actually a compliment.

GLITTER & DUST tells the story of four cowgirls who follow their hearts and search for a tomorrow in their conservative homeland.
