The film revolves around Felicity Merriman's adventures during the onset of the American Revolution.
Ten-year-old Felicity Merriman is growing up in Williamsburg, Virginia, just before the American Revolution. High-spirited and independent, Felicity decides to tame a wild horse owned by a leather maker/tanner, Jiggy Nye, who mistreats the horse. Even though her parents forbid her, she runs off to be with the horse, which Felicity names Penny. She eventually tames Penny and the two become fast friends.
Meanwhile, tension grows between the colonists. Some, including Felicity’s father and his apprentice, Ben, wish for independence from the king of England. Others, like Felicity’s grandfather and her best friend, Elizabeth, remain loyal to the king.
