Tod is a stable boy and horses are his whole life. When the owner of the ranch where he lives buys Quarter Horses to start a new breeding line, Tod loses his heart to Perina. He thought of the foal as his own – but owner Nakimer has other plans. Rather than be separated from Perina, Tod runs away with him into the outback.
