Synopsis:
Klara takes place in a little town where Klara moves together with her mother after her parents divorce.

She feels alienated and has hard time making friends. Most of the girls in Klara’s class go horse-back riding, so she joins the riding school to fit in. In order not to reveal that she’s a total beginner, Klara is forced to lie, but before she can reign in the lies, she’s signed up for a big riding competition…
Her salvation comes in the form of Jonte, a boy her own age, who helps her practice in secret on the ugly horse Star that nobody else wants – but who proves to be a real star after all.
A story about the first awkward steps out of childhood, the exciting stirrings of first love, and then about horses of course.
