Finn and Ally have no mother. Their father has withdrawn from the travelling life and they live in a hi-rise block in the city. Grandpa prefers the traditional life, and when he finds a beautiful horse on the road, he brings it to the city. The police try to confiscate the horse, so the children run away to the west with the horse, heading for the place their grandpa has told them about, Tir Na N’og, the land of eternal youth.
