The film, based on a Michael Morpurgo novel of the same name, follows young Albert and his horse Joey. The two share a special bond, which is broken by the outbreak of World War One and Joey is sent to join the cavalry in France. Despite being too young to enlist, Albert joins the forces and heads out to France to save Joey from a possible terrible fate.
