Summary

A young Jewish boy hiding on a farm with a rider from the Vienna riding school and their stable of Lipizzaner stallions journeys across Nazi-occupied Europe in order to save the horses.

1945 Austria. A Nazi officer is tipped off that a Spanish Riding School groom is sheltering a Jewish boy at his stables. Jakob hides successfully but has to watch the officer threaten his beloved Lipizzaner stallions just for spite. Jakob and his guardian know they must get the other horses away, but is it possible to get them all over the mountains to safety?

A fleeing Roma girl, Kizzy, joins them, but the three of them face one gruelling trial after another as they try to cross the Austrian mountains, through Nazi territory. Can they do it, and what will be waiting on the other side?
