Summer of the Colt

Summer of the Colt

Available on iTunes
Three children arrive at their grandfather's horse ranch on the Argentine pampas for their regular summer visit. Welcomed by their caring great-aunt, the affectionate family of the estate foreman, and their loving, but formidable grandpa (wonderfully played by Hector Alterio), the kids look forward to a magical summer. But events happen which force them to experience the pangs of growing up, the fragility of close friendships, and the changing dynamics between the people they love. An untamed colt comes between Grandson Daniel and his longtime friend, Martin (a very mature performance by Santiago Gonzalez Crende). Granddaughter Laura (Alexandra London-Thompson) forces her grandfather to come to terms with his past. And Phillipe, the youngest but perhaps the wisest, watches and listens, growing into his role as mentor and confidante to the others.
