Plot & Details
A privileged urban teen struggles to learn an important life lesson after her family falls on hard times and move to her grandparents' farm in order to get back on their feet. Whitney Brown (Sammi Hanratti) was raised in the lap of luxury; her parents (Aidan Quinn and Brooke Shields) gave her everything a child could ever want. But when the economic climate takes a turn for the worst, the well-to-do family must find a new place to live. Initially dejected by the slow pace of rural life, Whitney starts to perk up after befriending a majestic Gypsy Vanner horse named Odd Job Bob on a ranch owned by cantankerous Dusty (Kris Kristofferson) -- whose connection to her family is stronger than she suspects. It isn't long before the change of scenery, the quality family time, and the idyllic days spent with her new equine friend allow Whitney the opportunity to gain a greater appreciation for nature and to understand the importance of occasionally stepping back to put your life in perspective.
