Dai has looked after the horse Christo all his life, but after Christo’s owner dies, Dai decides to use all his savings to buy the horse. Leaving his wife, he decides the only place Christo will be safe is Dai’s childhood home in Wales, so he and the horse set off to ride there. When Dai reaches Wales, nothing is as he remembered it, but an old hovel is still there, as in his childhood, and there the two seek sanctuary.
