520    On the brink of World War II, a family is forced out of 
       their London home and into the countryside.  Wolfie and 
       his older sister Dodo are devastated to leave behind 
       everything they've ever known, but they slowly settle into
       their new life.  One day they come across an orphaned foal,
       which they raise as Hero, a strong and beautiful horse who
       lives up to his name when he saves the children from a 
       fire.  Wolfie and Dodo find comfort in their new life, but
       the war is escalating quickly and horses are needed for 
       combat.  One night, Hero is stolen, and the children are 
       shattered.  Years go by and there's no sign of Hero 
       returning.  It's only when Wolfie becomes a stable hand 
       that he discovers Hero has ended up working in the mines 
       under terrible conditions.  Then and there, Wolfie 
       resolves to save Hero, even if it puts his own life in 
       danger.  Together, they will survive.
