Summary
After getting caught, a young thief is charged to serve one year in a working prison. The lad is lonely and without hope but when he is allowed to help muck out the local stables Mr Alfie sees that he has a way with animals. So the stable manager asks the lad to tame a damaged and violent horse called Dombey, giving both the boy and horse a second chance. But will this friendship be enough to save Dombey, and help the 'bad lad' follow his dreams?
