While engaging in the brutal native equestrian sport of buzkashi, Afghan horseman Omar Sharif sustains a horrific injury...and earns the contempt of stablemaster father Jack Palance, who had the family fortune riding on him. To regain face, the crippled competitor must relearn his craft in time for the royal games. John Frankenheimer's harrowing parable co-stars Leigh Taylor-Young, Peter Jeffrey, David de Keyser. 109 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
