At the end of the 19th century, Marie (Annabella), a gypsy, marries an Irish nobleman. When her husband dies in a riding accident, Marie and her family move to Spain. Thirty years later, Marie is returning to Ireland with her granddaughter, Maria (also Annabella), hoping to sell a racehorse. At the track, Maria meets Canadian horse trainer Kerry Gilfallen (Henry Fonda), with whom she falls in love. A series of mix-ups throws a wrench in Maria’s plans, but love ultimately wins out.
