Based on the inspirational true story of a horse that was deemed too small to become a champion, JAPPELOUP stars Guillaume Canet, Daniel Auteuil, Marina Hands and Donald Sutherland. At the start of the 1980s, Pierre Durand (Guillaume Canet) abandons a promising legal career and throws himself into his true passion - show jumping. With his fathers (Daniel Auteuil) backing, he gambles everything on a young horse who no one else had any faith in: Jappeloup. Too small, too stubborn, too impetuous, he has many faults, but nonetheless has a remarkable jumping ability. From competition to competition, the pair improve and begin to make their mark on the show jumping world. But the Los Angeles Olympic Games is a disaster for them, and Pierre has to face up to his shortcomings. With the help of his wife, Nadia, and groom Raphalle, Pierre has to regain Jappeloups confidence and build a relationship with the remarkable horse, as the 1988 Seoul Olympics looms.
