Synopsis

Based on Walter Farley's classic children's book, this exciting adventure follows young Alec, who is travelling onboard a ship with his father. Disaster strikes and the ship sinks, but Alec survives, along with a mysterious black horse. The pair are stranded on a desert island where they develop a strong bond. After they are rescued, trainer Henry helps to prepare the stallion to become a champion racehorse. Hugely acclaimed by audiences on its release, the film is a stirring and heartfelt account of the unique emotional ties that can be struck between humans and animals.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
