It's been a dark year for Sunny (Kelsey Mulrooney), a 10-year-old girl who lost her father and the use of her legs in a car accident. But hope shines on Sunny when she and her mother move into the horse ranch next door and the girl befriends a crippled horse named Ginger. Watching over Sunny's journey of healing is the ranch owner, a former rodeo star named Ben Taylor (Tom Amandes). This family-friendly heartwarmer is based on a true story.
