A young boy (Rendall) is sent to live with his aunt Fiona (Seymour) while his mother recuperates from a car accident that took her husband and daughter. The reclusive aunt lives on Sable Island which is a haven for wild horses, birds etc. Sable Island is about 100 miles east of Nova Scotia. Fiona is allowed to live there by the Canadian Government providing she does not touch the horses.
The is a movie worth seeing. It has elements of The Earthling (William Holden, Ricky Shroeder) and The Black Stallion (Kelly Reno, Mickey Rooney). (Oh, BTW, The Earthling is not about people from Mars etc.)
This is a good family movie, almost perfect. I thought it might be a true story, but was unable to confirm that.
