Australian television film partly filmed in New Zealand which was part of the South Pacific Adventure series.
Anna Peterson loves horses, and the fact that her father works at a racetrack in Sydney, Australia only adds to her enthusiasm. One night at dinner, her father announces that after the success of one of the stable's horses in a prominent trophy race, his boss gave the employees a bonus large enough for the Peterson family to go back to her father's ancestral home in New Zealand. Tragically the following day, there is an accident at the stables and Anna's father is killed.
With nothing left to keep them in Australia, Anna's mother Rose decides to follow through on her husband's dream and moves Anna and her younger brother Mike to Charlton, New Zealand.
Anna dreams of owning a horse but her mother is afraid to let her as it was a horse that killed her father. A wild brumby terrorises the mean-minded landholder, Garrett, and despite all his attempts to kill the horse, it continually outsmarts him. The horse, declared untameable and possessed, meets young Anna and together they make Garrett realise he cannot be the ruler of everything.
