Young Nathan (Kyle Derosiers) has pulled a damaging prank at his school in the city and is sent to his father’s farm to work it off. But Nathan finds much more than he bargained for when he gets there, including Sarah, (Sara Ball) a very charming, independent farm hand, a bizarre crime ring, and a horse that only he can hear talk.
