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.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this tearjerker film about the love between a brave little girl and a horse involves grieving the loss of a parent. The film begins with a car accident, and the lead character -- a young girl -- is found unconscious several feet away from the crash. Adult characters have the occasional drink. There are two scenes where horses and their riders fall and are injured.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.

Violence

A car accident is shown at the beginning of the film where a girl is found unconscious, presumably thrown from the vehicle. We later learn her father died in the accident. Two little girls get into a brief scuffle in which they shove each other then fall to the ground pushing. A character falls off a horse in the rain and is sent to the hospital.

Language

While there is no profanity, there is some verbal bullying between young cowgirls.

Social Behavior

In spite of setbacks and tragedy, characters work to overcome life's obstacles and challenges in order to succeed with horses, rodeos, and life.

Consumerism

At the rodeo, advertisements for various car and cola companies are shown, and a saddle company's logo is shown on a box.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

At a fancy dinner date, characters sip wine. A character offers another some brandy. One character keeps a flask hidden in his coat, which he removes, unscrews, and sips.
