Lucky Prescott (Isabela Merced, 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold') never really knew her late mother, Milagro Navarro (Eiza González, 'Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw'), a fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the wide-open frontier.

Like her mother, Lucky isn't exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her Aunt Cora (Academy Award winner Julianne Moore) no small amount of worry. Lucky has grown up in an East Coast city under Cora's watchful eye, but when Lucky presses her own luck with one too many risky escapades, Cora picks up stakes and moves them both back with Lucky's father, Jim (Oscar nominee Jake Gyllenhaal), in Miradero.

Lucky is a fish out of water in the raucous railroad town, but she has a change of heart when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak, and befriends two local horseback riders, Abigail Stone (Mckenna Grace, 'Captain Marvel') and Pru Granger (Marsai Martin, 'Little'). Pru's father, stable owner Al Granger (Emmy winner Andre Braugher, TV's 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'), is the best friend of Lucky's father.

When a heartless horse wrangler (Emmy nominee Walton Goggins, TV's 'Justified') and his team capture Spirit and his herd and plan to auction them off to a life of captivity and hard labour, Lucky enlists her new friends to stop them. Together, the girls bravely embark on the adventure of a lifetime to rescue the horse who has given Lucky freedom and a sense of purpose and has helped her discover a connection to her mother's legacy and to her Mexican heritage that she never expected.

'Spirit Untamed' is in cinemas from Saturday the 12th of June 2021.
