Attention: the language of screening is Hungarian!
Meet Dot, the little wild horse foal. Dot lives in the heart of Europe, on the grassy plains of Hungary called the "Puszta" (Hortobágy). She is a Przewalski's horse, a species originally endemic to the steppes of Central Asia, i.e. Mongolia. Becoming a rare and endangered species, in 1997 a few Przewalski's horses were transferred to Hungary to Pentezug Wild Horse Reserve in the frame of a joint project launched by Hortobágy National Park and Cologne Zoo aiming at increasing the breeding population. Today this is one of the largest Przewalski's horse herds on the planet. Through breathtakingly beautiful shots, the documentary offers to the viewer an insight to the everyday life of these beautiful wild horses, also, tells about the challenges Dot has to tackle with while growing up, as well as about the joyous moments of a horse's life.
