Ben Crane is a horse trainer who works for Palmer, a breeder whose wealth and success has given him a certain degree of arrogance.

When Ben’s favorite horse, Sonador, breaks its leg during an important race, Palmer insists that the horse be put down on the spot.

But Ben doesn't have the heart to kill the animal, so he is fired but is allowed to take Sonador with him.

Ben has a hard time convincing anyone that the injured horse has any potential, especially his father, Pop.

But his daughter Cale loves the horse, and Ben believes that Sonador can make a comeback with the right care.
