A troubled teen learns that hope can come from the most unlikely places after emerging from rehabilitation and devoting her energy to rehabilitating a malnourished horse that had been abandoned to die by its previous owners. Shortly after being swept up in a self-destructive cycle of drug abuse, young Ashley (Victoria Emmons) is arrested by police during a robbery gone awry and sentenced to six months of rehabilitation. After serving her sentence, Ashley is sent to the country to live with her aunt, who trains horses, and begins to reflect on her dreams for the future before her life went off the rails. Her forgotten dreams of becoming a champion rider begin to resurface upon meeting Winston, an abandoned horse who is slowly dying of malnutrition. Now the more time Ashley spends helping Winston, the more she begins to recognize that the power of faith will give her the strength to conquer any obstacle that stands in her way.
