A wild albino colt is born on the pampas, but his colouring makes him hunted. Pablo is a desperately poor boy whose only support, his aunt, is dying. When she dies, Pablo, who has failed to keep a job, decides to become a gaucho. His over-confidence causes the death of two horses and serious injuries for Pablo. He hears about the albino stallion and decides the only way to make up for causing the death of his mentor’s horse is to capture the stallion.
