When men are laid off from a sawmill, Mitch (Aberdein) is in a position to realize his ambition of catching and selling the wild horses of the central volcanic plateau. Unfortunately, some of the men from the mill get jobs hunting deer, in the same area. Because Mitch and his horses are frightening off the deer, the deer hunters begin to ruthlessly wipe out the wild horses. The film is based upon actual events that happened during the 1960s and '70s and makes excellent use of interesting North Island locations, which is great because the story is so badly done that one needs pleasant distractions.
