Flicka

Based on the Mary O'Hara novel 'My Friend Flicka', 16-year-old Katy (Lohman) dreams of fulfilling her family legacy by working on her father's ranch in modern-day Wyoming. But Katy's father wants more for her, insisting she stop horsing around and go to college. When Katy finds a wild mustang, which she names Flicka, she sets out to make her a riding horse. A special bond between women & horse begins - Flicka, like Katy, has a disdain for authority and is not about to give up her freedom without a fight.
