THE YOUNG BLACK STALLION stars Richard Romanus (TV's "The Sopranos") and amazing young film newcomer Biana Tamimi in the lead role as Neera. Set in Northern Africa at the conclusion of World War II, this extraordinary film follows the adventures of Neera, a young girl, who becomes separated from her family and finds herself alone in the desert. When a wild stallion (whom Neera names Shetan) comes to her aid, the two form a special bond and the horse helps Neera return home to her grandfather. As their friendship and trust grows, the girl devises a daring plan to race the wild Shetan (whose name means "the devil") in the annual horse race and help restore her grandfathers's (Romanus) reputation. Staking everything on the race, Neera's iron will and courage combined with Shetan's untamed power and determination culminates in some of the most breathtaking and triumphant scenes ever. THE YOUNG BLACK STALLION originally premiered in the large Theatrical IMAX® format.
