The picturesque New Zealand landscape is the star of this mediocre but well-meaning western. Aberdein is an unemployed logger who is hired by a national park to round up a herd of wild horses. Bach and Wilson join up, but the trio has no success. Complications arise when a venison company

hires a group of men, led by Lawrence, to kill all the deer in the area. Lawrence's men soon grow impatient with Aberdein's inability to capture horses and his uncanny knack at scaring off the deer. Lawrence plays tough and begins killing the horses. In the meantime, Aberdein has noticed a

gorgeous white stallion and is determined to catch him. To ensure the horse's safety, Aberdein makes a pact with Lawrence, who agrees not to kill the stallion. Aberdein and his men continue to have no luck with the round-up. Finally, they receive some help from Poata and Gibbes, a likable pair who

live off the land. Thanks to their new teachers, the trio improves its success rate. The feud between the deer hunters and the horse wranglers reaches the boiling point when Gibbes is attacked by some of Lawrence's more savage henchmen. A showdown occurs at the film's climax, and the heroic

Aberdein walks away with his head held high. Reportedly based on a real-life situation in New Zealand's Tongariro National Park in the 1960s.
