I watched recently the Disney movie “Flash”, released in 1997. It is the moving story of a child which, after getting his dream horse, has to face alone a series of family hardships, such as his grandmother’s death and confiscation of his home soon after that . The boy decides to sell his horse to make ends meet and live in the stables of the wealthy businessman who bought him.
The real action begins when the boy saves his horse from being shot and begins a long journey on horseback to meet his father in New York city.
A nice movie for the whole family focusing on story rather than effects. You can watch the full movie here
