Fiery teenager Mika is smart and independent, but hardly a model student. After failing her exams, her parents send her away to spend the summer with her strict grandmother, who runs riding stables in the middle of nowhere. Mika is unimpressed until she comes across a beautiful but unpredictable black stallion with whom she has an instant connection. Mika's grandmother is convinced there is no solution to Windstorm's dangerous behavious. Mika must prove her wrong and save her new friend. This classic narrative is boosted by stunning cinematography.

The screening takes place at the Filmhouse Edinburgh and is in German with English subtitles. A teachers' resource pack is available to accompany this film.
