A traveller and his two sons settle down in a high-rise flat in Dublin. The two boys' imaginations are captured by their grandfather's fairly tales which are woven around a white horse he has brought back and is attempting to keep in the flat. When the Council finds out, they take away the horse and sell it to a farmer. The two boys decide to steal it back and head for the 'wild' west of Ireland.
