Xue Er is a horse that Po Wa saves from a wolf pack. It lives a peaceful and pastoral life with Po Wa’s family in the Yehu Valley until one day, when war breaks out. Xue Er is forcibly taken away by Japanese troops and branded with a hot iron at the Japanese military camp. Kono, a Japanese officer, takes a fancy to Xue Er and wants to train the pony to be his own saddle horse. Xue Er refuses to be trained by Kono because in its heart, Po Wa from the Yehu Valley is its only master. Due to its perseverance and through confrontation, Xue Er becomes a war horse that pulls cannons and has to suffer through separation from its children. Just as unfortunate as Xue Er is, the villagers of the Yehu Valley are attacked by the Japanese cannons.

Surviving through war and hardship, Xue Er is finally brought back to the Yehu Valley by Po Wa, but the brand on its body becomes its lifelong disgrace. Xue Er bows its head in shame in front of the villagers until there is a chance to win back its dignity…
