On a starry night in a country backyard, a colt is born. A little girl watches as his mother licks him clean.
“I will call him Star,” she says.
For years, Star lives happily in the only home he’s ever known, with the girl who loves him best. But as time passes, the little girl grows up, goes to college and can no longer take care of her horse.
Star begins a long journey filled with unfamiliar people and places. Finally he finds a new home and a new purpose as a therapy horse.
