In 1868, William Standing, a man shadowed by his history, is forced into thievery, taking a majestic horse that is half mustang, half Arabian. He returns to an unspeakable tragedy: his sister’s homestead ravaged by the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers, a tribe notorious for their fearsome warfare, leaving only the children taken captive. Driven by desperation, Standing tracks the Cheyenne, witnessing the aftermath of their raids.

In an unexpected confrontation, Standing proves his mettle, rescuing the children but surrendering the black horse to his adversaries. Just as hope dawns, the horse’s original owners emerge, leading to Standing’s harsh sentencing: twenty years in Georgia Penitentiary. His escape sparks a relentless search for the scattered children, now with distant kin.

Joining Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show offers Standing a guise to move from town to town, yet the Pinkertons’ pursuit is unyielding. His quest is a tumultuous ride through the heart of a man’s indomitable spirit and the wild tapestry of the American frontier.
