Layne ne veut qu'une chose, suivre les traces de son père comme monteur de taureau. Son père était sur le point de remporter le championnat national lorsqu'il a été piétiné à mort. Layne veut remporter ce championnat pour son père. Mais il ne veut pas finir comme lui et mourir dans l'arène du rodéo. Lorsque l'occasion se présente, Layne doit faire face à sa plus grande peur.

Layne wants nothing more than to follow in his father's footsteps and to be a bull rider. His dad was one ride away from a National Championship when he got trampled to death. Layne wants to be able to give his dad that championship—by winning it for him. What he doesn't want, though, is to end up like his father and die in the rodeo arena. When the chance comes, Layne realizes he must face up to his greatest fear. With the help of his friend Jana, and his bratty younger sister, Layne learns to reach deep inside and trust himself.
