Randal buys a chestnut filly, Amber Light, who is supposed to be unmanageable, and he, his friend Noel and the gardener Moses, between them manage to break the filly in, despite the opposition of Randal’s parents and school. Randal declares he can train the filly so well that she could work in a film, and then sets out to prove it.
