Description by Koch Entertainment Distribution:
On an island off the Virginia coast lives a centuries-old band of wild ponies. Among them is the mysterious Phantom, a rarely seen mare that eludes all efforts to capture her - that is, until a young brother and sister lay eyes on her. Although Phantom would forever be a creature of the wild, her gentle, loyal colt Misty enters both children's lives to stay. Based on the Newbery Honor Award-winning novel "Misty of Chincoteague" by Marguerite Henry, this heartwarming adaptation stars David Ladd, Arthur O'Connell and Anne Seymour.
Two enthusiastic children learn how to tame a beautiful but wild pony, then prepare to enter the prize horse in a race. But as the contest nears the youngsters entertain the notion of setting the pony free, finding that love sometimes means letting go.
