War Horse begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him.
When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets.
From the British cavalry to German soldiers, and a French farmer to his granddaughter, the horse touches all their lives before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man's Land.
