Mika is angry. After failing her exams and accidently setting her teacher's car on fire, the rebellious teen is sent away to the horse riding school of her estranged grandmother for the summer. Unwilling to spend her entire holidays stuck indoors, Mika decides to explore the stables, where she finds Windstorm, a ferocious and terrifying stallion hidden away in the darkest of corners. Immediately drawn to the untamed beast, she connects to him on a level no one before has ever managed. As the unlikely bond develops and through encouragement from her grandmother, Mika begins to ride, discovering her true passion. But will Mika manage the unmanageable and tame Windstorm?
