Mika, a rebellious and underachieving teen, is sent by her parents to the countryside to spend the summer with her strict grandmother, who runs a horse stable and riding school. For Mika, who has never taken care of horses before, the days at first seem to stretch on forever. But soon enough, something happens that sparks her true passion and talent: she discovers that she is a horse whisperer who is able to speak to a wild and skittish stallion named Windstorm. But can she save the magnificent and ferocious creature before it is too late? A film for horse lovers and anyone who has ever seen their own reflection in an animal’s eyes.
