Alise, the world’s greatest coward, is in deep trouble. A huge, wild and dangerous horse crashes right into the neighbourhood basketball court. Her best friend Rebecca and the rest of the gang expect her – Alise – to grab hold of it. She’s the one who is supposed to know everything about horses. She’s the one who can ride and make horses jump ever so high…. The only problem is that Alise has lied. About everything. She’s terrified of horses.
Once upon a time Alise’s grandfather knew everything there was to know about horses. But that was a long time ago. Before he was grumpy and angry all the time. Besides, what does it matter when the owner has made his mind up that the horse has to die.

In this action filled family movie we follow Alise as she takes her largest leap of faith ever – facing her own fears in order to save the doomed horse TRIGGER

"Excitement, joy, sorrow, action – and horse stunts you never before have seen in a Scandinavian family movie." (Norwegian Film Institute)
