In this heart-warming true story, William Allen White (Ed Flanders) reflects on the year he spent with his daughter Mary (Kathleen Beller), a young social reformer and expert horsewoman, before her untimely death. Based on Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist's own writings, this moving, inspirational tribute is a celebration of courage and determination in the face of adversity.
An accident while riding her horse during a competition leaves a young girl unable to walk. Doctors are hopeful that she can regard her mobility with some intense treatment and therapy but, unfortunately, the spirit has gone out of the girl. Her widowed father must agree to the demands placed upon him and his daughter by her tough-but-caring physical therapist that uses animals in her treatment. Will the bound between a girl and her therapy horse be enough to motivate her out of her wheelchair?
