Set against the red sand dunes of the oldest desert in the world, one courageous horse grows from an awkward colt into a magnificent stallion, triumphing against all odds at the edge of the rugged, inhospitable Skeleton Coast of Namibia. In 1914, Lucky, a young foal, is born aboard a German supply steamer transporting his mother and other workhorses to Africa. Soon parted from his mother and terribly vulnerable, the foal is adopted by an orphaned stable boy in a mining town. When the town evacuates due to encroaching war, Lucky is abandoned and ventures into the surrounding desert. Following the lead of a young Bushman girl and later an Oryx antelope, the foal learns how to survive in the harsh setting. Lucky's journey eventually leads him back to the destroyed mining town where he protects a young mare, Beauty, and undertakes a heroic mission to defeat Caesar, a domineering stallion.
