A true story of war, courage and kindness. Geordie is an 18 year old boy fighting for England on one of the most unforgiving battlefields of World War I.

In the heat of fire and destruction, he notices a German pack donkey in labour.

Risking his life in a temporary truce, Geordie saves the new born foal and raises him to be a favourite among the troops.

Defying the odds of survival, this story tells the tale of two unlikely friends depending on each other to get through the Great War.
