Synopsis

Lucky is a young colt born on a ship taking horses to work in the copper mines of Nambia. When his mother dies in the harsh labour conditions, Lucky is rescued by a young orphan stableboy named Richard (Chase Moore), and the friendship that develops between the pair gives them both the strength to stand up to the cruelty of their circumstances and make a bid for freedom. Filmed on Africa's Skeleton Coast, 'Running Free' features beautiful photography and was written by Jeanne Rosenberg, the writer of the classic horse-and-boy tale 'The Black Stallion'.
