In the unforgiving wilderness of the Australian Alps roams a stallion like no other: the Silver Brumby, revered by all, including his greatest enemy, man. One horseman determines to challenge the might of the horse who, according to legend, could never be tamed.
The fantasy element of this film comes through the strong anthropomorphism in the treatment of the horses and the way in which the story of Thowra and The Man is framed as a fable.
Set in the Australian high country and based on the characters created by Elyne Mitchell in her Silver Brumby books, this series follows the adventures of the silver colt Thowra, son of the mighty Yarraman. Thowra is destined to become king of all the wild horses. Intelligent and courageous, Thowra, his friends Storm and Boon Boon, his half brother Arrow, and the bush animals, including Benni the wise kangaroo, have to outwit the Mountain Men who want to capture the wild horses and take away their freedom.
