Amid the spectacular high country of a national park, wild horses roan and breed. On the edge of the park, years of logging have cleared the lush native bush leaving scrub, stumps and an out of work logger, Dan Mitchell. The trees gone, Mitchell and his two friends, the Sullivan brothers, turn to the wild horses as a source of income. With rope and snare -- and the help of an experienced horse catching team -- Sam and Sara -- they find a new way of life. From Sam and Sara's example, the rough ex-loggers learn to respect a delicate balance between the wild horses and their catchers. The best stallions are left to breed and thier riding horses are retired back into the wild herds. But soon, the harmony of their lives will be suddenly shattered. In an atmosphere charged with deception and double dealing, the tension builds to a nail-biting and unexpectedly poignant climax

Trama: Buenos Aires, 1976. Harry, 10 anni, è un bambino come tanti altri: va a scuola, adora i fumetti e i cartoni animati, ha un amico del cuore, Bertuccio, con cui fa i compiti e gioca al pomeriggio, ha un fratello più piccolo, chiamato da tutti "il nano" Il padre è avvocato, la madre ricercatrice universitaria. Quest'ultima, un giorno, senza preavviso, va a prendere il figlio a scuola durante una lezione e lo porta con sé prima a casa di amici e poi, il mattino seguente, fuori città in un casolare di campagna immerso nel verde. Harry non lo sa, ma a Buenos Aires sta salendo al potere la dittatura: in tutto il paese gli arresti e le sparizioni degli oppositori politici sono sempre più numerosi e suo padre e sua madre, vista la loro militanza, potrebbero essere arrestati da un momento all'altro. Durante le lunghe giornate trascorse nella tenuta in campagna, in una situazione di semiclandestinità sempre più pericolosa, Harry ha modo di fare amicizia con Lucas (un giovane dissidente ospitato dai suoi genitori per qualche tempo), di scoprire, grazie alla lettura di un libro, le incredibili gesta dell'illusionista Houdini (tanto da cercare nel suo piccolo di emularlo) e, soprattutto, di legarsi ancor di più con il resto della famiglia, con cui ormai condivide ansie e piccoli momenti di serenità. Quando, però, anche la tenuta di campagna cessa di essere un posto sicuro e diventa sempre più difficile trovare un altro rifugio, i genitori di Harry si risolvono a lasciare i figli in custodia ai nonni, che vivono isolati nel sud del paese, per garantirne l'incolumità e per garantirsi un margine di salvezza maggiore. Harry non può far altro che osservare la macchina dei genitori allontanarsi, consapevole che non la rivedrà comparire mai più
