Wirramirra, the silver foal, embarks on a long and hazardous search to find his father, the legendary silver brumby, Thowra. He travels with his mother Yuri and her mate, Kulali. They come across a hut in the mountains with captured wild horses in the yard and their curiosity gets the better of them but the man will not forget the silver brumby foal he has seen near the yard and will hunt for him across all the Snowy Mountains.

Other horses threaten the group as they travel onward in their search for Thowra and the man is always there, wanting to capture the free spirit that is Wirramirra
