It's a story that inspired a nation...and one that almost didn't happen. It is the story of a country whose dreams had been shattered... and the people who found a hero in an average horse that could achieve the unthinkable. It is the story of three lost men - Johnny "Red" Pollard, a young man whose spirit has been broken; Charles Howard, a millionaire who lost everything; and Tom Smith, a cowboy whose worls was vanishing - who found each other and discovered hope in an unlikely place. The odds were incredible. The dream was impossible... And somehow, it actually happened.
