Playing with hobbyhorses is a traditional children's play, but today's teenage girls have brought it to a whole new level. They are organized, ambitious and a growing group of thousands of girls. Making and riding their horses and being a part of the hobbyhorse community help the girls survive the stormy teenage years. And yet they keep their hobby hidden from the "normal" world, to avoid being bullied. Hobbyhorse Sisters is a film about Aisku, Elsa, Alisa and their friends, who come from different backgrounds but share the love for the hobby. While witnessing the beauty and power of growing up, it asks: When are people too old to play?
