Caught between freeways and powerlines, the story of "Heroes" takes
place in one of Stockholm's suburban stables. The two young protagonists,
Linnea and Jenny, try to come to terms with the new demands of teenage life. 
Their friendship becomes plagued with rivalry and competition as they 
leave the stable world behind. A film about horses, female friendships 
and power struggles.
