In the British moorlands, a young boy (Mark Lester)─mute since a toddler, and unreachable by his parents─finds his life changed when he makes a friend of a kindly retired soldier (John Mills) who shares his love of nature. With the old man's help, the lad sets out to catch and tame a wild albino pony, and learns hard lessons in responsibility along the way. Fine family fare co-stars Gordon Jackson, Sylvia Syms, Fiona Fullerton. 100 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
