There are only five stars? This film.....where are the words? They simply don't exist. Wild horses trying to save trees with more majesty by far than any human being. The horses proved their humanity far better than any there holding a chain saw or wearing a bright orange vest. If we don't learn to respect what is in nature, we WILL be forced to succumb to it. This film puts this fact beautifully into focus. The horses....oh the horses........
