John Steinbeck adapted three of his own classic short stories to create a powerful family portrait. Young Tom is unable to find the love and guidance he needs from his parents. For friendship and support, Tom turns to the easy-going hired hand, Billy Buck. In an attempt to become closer to his son, Tom's father gives him a red pony to raise. As the horse becomes the focus of Tom's life, it ultimately drives the family further apart as Tom turns to Billy for help in rearing his beloved pet
