A modern retelling of Anna Sewell’s classic novel, Black Beauty explores the heartfelt story of 15 year-old Audry (Jennifer Mckenzie) who makes the discovery of a lifetime whilst volunteering at a city animal shelter. Rescued from an abusive owner and recovering from a traumatic past, Black Beauty possesses a most unique quality of character, endearing itself to Audry and her Grandpa (Bruce Davison, X-Men) who adopt the horse in order to give it a second chance and perhaps even help revitalise their own family situation. Aided by dedicated trainer James (Luke Perry, Beverly Hills 90210) and tested by the many challenges of equine life, Black Beauty has his work cut out for him as he embarks on a remarkable journey of discovery and friendship.
