A handful of unforgettable characters set out on a 100-day quest to tame a totally wild mustang for a Texas competition in this stunning and poignant documentary. Among them: Charles, a Navajo grandfather out to re-capture his youth; George, a grizzled cowboy with a stubborn streak; and Wylene, a blond beauty with a theatrical flare and a nerve of steel. In three months, man and horse must transform from scared strangers to close companions. It won't be an easy journey. Bones and egos will take a beating. Fear and frustration will weed many out. But those who prevail may find themselves desperately vying to keep their horses when they ultimately all go up for adoption at a public auction.Written by

Wonderful! Wonderful!! Wonderful!!!
I misspent my younger years working as an assistant horse trainer and managed to work with two mustangs during that time. Thus I have a pretty good idea of how challenging the job can be. To say that I found the incredible accomplishments documented in this movie amazing would be to understate my reaction by more than a little. And for the results to be obtained in 100 days, more than amazing. Astounding would be the term I'd use. But the makers of this movie accomplished much more than a simple showcasing of competence on the part of the trainers portrayed. Although wild horses were the main focus the sensitive portrayal of human spirit is what I will never forget. In the future every time I get disillusioned with human misbehavior I will watch this movie again for a refresher course in the great things we are capable of achieving.
