This bittersweet chronicle about how a working horse finally gains his freedom was inspired by a real animal and true events, yet it's underlying theme is about the universal value of friendship. 

The hero is a sturdy draft horse: old, eccentric and irritable. His name, suitably enough, is Groucho. By day, he hauls a tourist carriage around the heritage streets of Montreal. By night, he goes home to a stable in a run-down, working clazz district. 

When his owner dies, Groucho feels the loss and is helped through it by the ancient stableman, Doyle, who is also set in his ways. This is the story of how they cope with each other, as well as the threat which endangers their entire way of life.
