This is an excellent achievement for the filmmakers. I was lucky enough to see this at a special preview at an IMAX theatre, and the cinematography is superb with the aerial shots from the chopper worth the price of admission alone. It tells the story from birth of 3 horses and the different paths their lives take - one escapes to the wild, one becomes a stunt horse for the movie industry and one becomes a racehorse. It shows how each of the "career" paths taken by each horse differ, as well as touching on a brief history of horses. You don't need to have an interest in horses to enjoy this film - the photography, direction and sound of this film will blow you away. This is meant to be seen on the big, big screen so see it while you can on an IMAX screen or any cinema with a larger than normal display to get more enjoyment of it.

Well done to the filmmakers and I hope this film succeeds to encourage you to make more films like this.
