War took his hope, a horse gave him courage
London, 1940. Dodo and her little brother Wolfie do not know what has happened to their father. A cavalry officer, war hero and veteran of the Somme, he has gone missing at Dunkirk. The children are evacuated to the West Country, away from everything they know. Alone in a high and wild land, they are taunted and bullied when their father is accused of cowardice and desertion.
Wolfie finds an orphaned foal, names him Hero and raises him. Together they roam the hills, finding freedom and happiness, little suspecting the dark shadow that hangs over them and the test that lies in store for them both...
