Drake and his sister Nellie arrive in a strange land, which they find is inhabited by unicorns. Drake forms a special bond with a filly, Cloudberry, and together the two hope to race, and win. Their dream is threatened by Cloudberry’s brother, who seems to think she is responsible for all the ills that afflict him.
It’s Nellie’s turn to find a unicorn that matters here: she befriends Nightcloud, who appears unpredictable, and evil. Nellie however is able to see beneath the evil facade to the decent creature that lies beneath.
