Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
In the tradition of such timeless stories as My Friend Flicka, Black Beauty, and The Black Stallion comes this touching tale of friendship between a young girl devastated by the loss of her mother, and the young colt who gives her hope when all seems lost. Following the death of his wife in a tragic riding accident, Ford Lofton (Gabriel Byrne) sells the horse and forbids his two daughters from ever riding again. In a conscious and deliberate act of defiance, 13-year-old Virginia (Lindza Letherman) nurses the new horse's colt, Stormy, to health and secretly sneaks out at night to train him. When Ford decides to sell Stormy, it's up to Virginia and sympathetic trainer Jessie Eastwood (Joanne Whalley) to convince the stubborn father to allow his daughter room to learn and grow on her own.
