Against the isolated New Zealand mountains, Peter and Colleen Karena struggle to raise their six children on the thin edge between freedom and disaster. Peter hunts, trains wild horses, and works to instill the values of independence and courage in his children, while an escalating struggle with his own father has profound consequences for the entire Karena clan. In a precipitous existence that is equal parts glorious abandon and painful suspense, Peter and Colleen set up a series of makeshift camps while their brood of fearless kids ride bareback across the wild New Zealand landscape. Ultimately, this complete immersion in another way of life reveals that the price of freedom is well worth paying.
