Steve Buscemi, Chloe Sevigny and Travis Fimmel also star in Andrew Haigh's drama.

Charlie Plummer is on a mission in the trailer for Lean on Pete.

Andrew Haigh (Weekend, 45 Years) directed the adaptation of Willy Vlautin's novel, which stars Plummer as a lonely teen who bonds with the titular aging racehorse. Upon learning from the horse's owner (Steve Buscemi) that the animal is set to be slaughtered, the boy takes extreme measures to save its life and heads on a trip across America.

Chloe Sevigny and Travis Fimmel are also among the cast of the film, which first debuted to strong reviews earlier this year at the Venice Film Festival.

A24 will release Lean on Pete on March 30.
