"The Last Horsemen of New York" follows the story of the working class Teamster carriage-drivers who fought to save their historic industry. Opponents of the industry rocketed their chosen candidate to the top of the ticket and into City Hall, but he found that making good on his promise proved harder than anyone expected. The film follows carriage industry spokespeople Christina Hansen and Stephen Malone in their day to day struggle to fend off extinction. Leading the charge for the carriages in the media is well known actor and New York resident Liam Neeson. As the fight unfolds, a much broader story emerges about powerful interests against the common man and the role of secret unaccountable money that corrupts the political system.
