AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This cinematic adaptation of Alan Marshall's autobiography I Can Jump Puddles transfers the setting from the Australian outback to a stud farm in the picturesque countryside of Moravia at the turn of the century (when Moravia is still a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire). The narrative focuses on Adam, the energetic son of a horse trainer, who contracts polio and is hospitalised. His own courage and the love of his parents help him accept his inability to walk without crutches. But he is still determined to fulfil his dream of riding a horse, and he persuades his friends to help him in secret.
