Full Plot

Dartmoor,1914: To his wife's dismay farmer Narracott buys a thoroughbred horse rather than a plough animal, but when his teenaged son Albert trains the horse and calls him Joey, the two becoming inseparable. When his harvest fails, the farmer has to sell Joey to the British cavalry and he is shipped to France where, after a disastrous offensive he is captured by the Germans and changes hands twice more before he is found, caught in the barbed wire in No Man's Land four years later and freed. He is returned behind British lines where Albert, now a private, has been temporarily blinded by gas, but still recognizes his beloved Joey. However, as the Armistice is declared Joey is set to be auctioned off. After all they have been through will Albert and Joey return home together? don @ minifie-1 Plot not found

Maj. Jamie Stewart: Be brave! Be brave! Rose Narracott: [to Ted] I might hate you more, but I'll never love you less. Gunther: Well look at you! Albert Narracott: We'll be alright Joey. We're the lucky ones, you and me. Lucky since the day I met you. Michael: The food in Italy is good, yeah? Gunther: [nods] Yes, very good. Michael: And the women? Gunther: Not as good as the food... Michael: From eating too much of the food? Emilie: And you've never done a brave thing in your life? Grandfather: Maybe there are different ways to be brave. Did you know the French have the best carrier pigeons? And this could be the difference in the war - our messages getting through. Emilie: I don't want to hear about the birds. Grandfather: They are released at the front and told to go home - this is all they know. But to get there they must fly over war. Can you imagine such a thing? Here you are flying over so much pain and terror - and you know you can never look down. You have to look forward or you'll never get home. I ask you - what could be braver than that?
