Storyline

In this touching family drama, Kacie Lewis (Allie Deberry) is a rebellious 17-yr-old girl who is struggling with guilt and anger after witnessing the death of her younger brother. When Kacie is arrested and sentenced to a work-release program at Spirit Riders, an equine therapy camp for disabled and physically challenged youths she finds herself out of her element and having trouble adjusting to the rules. She finds a kindred spirit in Blaze, a retired racehorse having difficulty adjusting to his new domesticated life. Under the guidance of Rex (Lance Henriksen), the no-nonsense owner of the ranch, Kacie helps re-train Blaze and in the process learns to let go of the past forgive and set her spirit free.

Allie DeBerry is a strong-willed, convincing actress!
17 October 2015 | by casey75244See all my reviews

This is a rare opportunity for an entire family to sit down together and watch a good movie based on solid, timeless, basic core values that seem to be missing with many young teenagers of this generation

The soundtrack is superb and frames each scene with a rich, velvety- smooth orchestration of melodies and themes that perfectly colors the story. Congratulations to Mr. Justin R Durban!

Allie DeBerry is a wonderful, talented actress who communicates the self-centered, volatile and troubled life of a teenager trying to process a tragic incident at an adult level while still clinging to the childlike threads of hope that she can fix everything wrong with her world.

Yes, the budget did not allow for all scenes to be edited perfectly, and some of the young supporting cast can appear rigid and unfamiliar with the overall process, however, the film is to be championed for it's vision and purpose rather than scorned by those who demand instant gratification that doesn't require insight and empathy for other people.
