Description

Dagmar Seume’s picturesque film about a resilient young equestrian and a very special horse is a moving story, punctuated with humor and joy, about family ties, resilience, compassion, and courage. It’s been a year since Wendy took a fall from her horse that has kept her out of the saddle. Though recovered from her injury, even the love and encouragement of her family isn’t enough to make her ride again. Everything changes when Wendy meets a neglected horse that desperately needs her help. Initially unsure of this spirited, forgotten creature, Wendy cannot resist her gentle and sweet new friend Dixie. The two must work together in secret to gain each other’s trust. Though Dixie’s plight is a mystery to Wendy, she knows that there is more to this unique animal than meets the eye. Time is running out and Wendy knows she must conquer her fears and fight to save her beloved horse’s life. Age 8+

In association with Berlin & Beyond Film Festival.
