Surviving a traumatizing experience can understandably lead people to lose faith in being able to rely on others. But regaining the ability to trust may ultimately be the best way for victims to begin to overcome their upsetting ordeal. That’s certainly the case for Téa Mckay’s protagonist in the upcoming drama, ‘Unbridled,’ which has released its official trailer, stills and poster.
‘Unbridled,’ which is set to be released later this year by Moving Visions Entertainment, shines a light on human trafficking, which is said to be the fastest growing criminal industry at $9 billion dollars per year. The thriller, which is is inspired by a healing ranch in North Carolina, chronicles the journey of an abused teen girl, who’s portrayed by Mckay. The lead character teams up with an abused horse, and the two embark on journey to healing.
The film was directed by John David Ware. In addition to Mckay, it also stars T.C. Stallings, Eric Roberts, Jenn Gotzon Chandler, Dey Young, Rachel Hendrix and Rusty Martin Sr.
‘Unbridled’ follows Sarah (Mckay), a 16-year-old girl who is abused, emotionally abandoned and written off as just another hopeless causality of this world. Her mother’s boyfriend, Roger (Roberts), secretly involves Sarah in a sex traffic ring. Her mother, Karen (Young), is unsure of what to do, and is afraid to stand up for her. Sarah thinks she is beyond redemption and unworthy of love.
So Sarah’s sent away from the house that defined her horrors, to a place where she is not the only victim, or the only one fighting to get her life back. She lands at the title ranch, where she meets Dreamer, a horse who has also suffered abuse, and no longer trusts humans. That lack of trust begins to be reversed as Sarah and Dreamer walk a difficult road together, and learn that family doesn’t just happen, it’s made with hard work. They face many hardships and overcome terrifying obstacles, but in the end, Sarah experiences redemption and learns that love is the most powerful thing on earth. Together, they all learn to live Unbridled.
