Storyline

Seventeen-year-old Dusty Rhodes (Bailee Madison) goes to live with her grandfather (Pat Boone) because both of her Army parents are fighting in the Afghanistan war. Dusty attends a new high school where she makes friends with a group that includes Savanah (Chloe Lukasiak), a girl whose father also served in the Army. Dusty convinces her new friends into forming an equestrian drill team that allows them to perform at rodeos and parades. Dusty's world is turned upside down by the war when her mother's helicopter is shot down in action and she goes missing. To cope with her fear and helplessness, Dusty enlists the help of her grandfather and friends to put on a special riding performance for her parents and all of the soldiers fighting overseas. The entire town turns out in support of the event, and it becomes an unforgettable experience for everyone. Written by Samuel Goldwyn Films

Goofs

When Dusty is first introduced to the class, one of the students makes a comment, to which Mrs. Preston responds to try to act their age and not their I.Q. as a way of telling them to "grow up." The correct phrase is to act their age and not their shoe size, as their shoe size is usually a lower number than their physical age while, in this case, their IQ would be much higher than their age. In essence, she was telling the student to act less mature, not more mature. See more »

Very disappointed
25 July 2017 | by sarahmunnsterSee all my reviews

I really like Baillee Madison's work, so I was really looking forward to this. But this movie is genuinely the worst movie I have ever seen. And I know that is very harsh, but it is undeniably true. The script is very dry and cheesy, and the acting is incredibly stiff. In general I feel as though the actors are talented, but they just have a really awful script to work with. I don't know if it was because she was the only other lead besides Bailee Madison, but the girl who played Savannah was very stiff and unnatural. There were times when the scenes with her would be flat out cringe worthy, because of her stiffness. She seems like she has a lot of potential, so I hope she works on her acting. And that also goes with the other girls. And honestly everyone. Also the "bad girls" were just girls that wore put together outfits and heavy makeup, and acting out a little bit???? And the "good girls" wore minimal makeup and lighter clothing. I get that there trying to show an obvious difference between the "good" and "bad" girls, but did they really need to use makeup and clothes to distinguish the characters??? I also feel like there were a lot of could lessons that good have saved the movie, but they just flat out fell through. At least they have pretty good diversity?????
