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.

Great family film! Great message for children and young adults.
1 June 2015 | by bobbysargentSee all my reviews

This is one of the best family films I've seen in years. It deals with choices children,teenagers and young adults have to make in life. The story and locations bring some other sensitive issues into play that many children and young adults have not had an opportunity to consider in their lives yet. The characters were interesting and the performance by Lance Henriksen brought to the screen represented a very touching and sensitive character with the wisdom that years bring. The messages were subtle but strong and dealt with visually and by example instead of some of the in-your-face preaching that children and young adults are constantly pounded by.

What a great DVD to share with the family and the kids will enjoy it as the life's lessons will be delivered every time they watch it. The company that made this is EDGEN films. I will be looking for more of their productions.
