In Out of the Wild, we meet a Nevada cowboy and a guest ranch owner whose lives are woven together by an injured mustang. When Henry McBride, a cowboy with a drinking problem, comes looking for a job at a guest ranch, the owner, Jess King, thinks it will be good to have an extra hand for the endless work her ranch generates. For Henry, still grief-stricken over the death of his wife and young son 17 years earlier, it's just a way to get enough money to buy his next drink before he moves on. It isn't long before two pivotal events occur: Henry crosses paths with Chad, the ex-ranch manager, and a young mustang stallion that Jess has agreed to train arrives at the ranch. What transpires is a story not only of redemption-moving beyond our deepest wounds and discovering a life we never dreamed we could live-but also a glimpse into ways of looking at horses, and perhaps even ourselves, with new eyes.
