On the outbreak of the First World War, Albert's beloved horse 'Joey' is sold to the Cavalry by his Father. After being sent to France, in a bid to survive, Joey has an unexpected journey across war torn Europe. Albert enlists in the British Army, and is wounded during the Battle of the Somme. Whilst recovering in Hospital, he learns of a Horse, found in no mans land.

Down to his last penny, Ted Narracott, a former Second Boer War veteran and now a farmer in Devon, England, outbids his cruel landlord, Mr Lyons, at an auction and buys a thoroughbred colt. As his son, Albert, forms a close bond with Joey, the family's beautiful, graceful, and muscular male horse with the shiny coat, World War I breaks out, and the noble beast changes hands. Now, from the harsh mountainous landscapes of Devon, and the battle-scarred fields of the no man's land near the River Somme, brave Albert embarks on a peril-laden adventure across war-torn northern France, bent on finding his beloved Joey. Will Albert ever reunite with Joey, the fearless warhorse? - Nick Riganas
