About the Running Wild 💬

Stella Davis (Dorian Brown Pham), a California Ranch Socialite, is thrown into a world of chaos when her husband dies unexpectedly and she discovers that they are in financial ruin. Her husband has secretly mortgaged their massive acreage, the Double Diamond Ranch, to keep them afloat and she has ninety days until the creditors will come calling. She must decide whether to address her adversity head on or quit and let the bank have the land that has been in her family’s name for four generations.

After a good old-fashioned pity party, Stella stumbles upon her great grandmother's diaries. Stella finds inspiration in the tales of the dramatic obstacles her ancestors endured when first securing the land hundreds of years ago. Stella decides that she must dig deep within herself and find the grit to persevere. She has to abandon her days of leisure and actually get her hands dirty. Her ranch manager, Brannon Bratt (Jason Lewis), is there to educate her on the day to day of the Double Diamond Estate.

While on an exploration through the property, Stella discovers a herd of sickly wild horses that have broken through a fence and are grazing on her land. Bratt explains that it is a federal crime to feed or water the animals; Stella should get them to go out the way they came. She refuses to accept this. She can't bear the thought of their continued suffering, so she breaks the law and brings them food and water.

In order to keep the horses on her property, she makes a deal with the prison system to use her ranch as a Prison Rehabilitation Equine Program. This state-funded program also supplies some floating cash for her to ''keep the lights on'' while she figures out how to pay the creditors back. Every day for three months, Five convicts are brought to her property and picked up again at nightfall. The convicts work with the wild horses. In many ways, it is hard to say who/what is being more rehabilitated or trained: the convicts or the horses.

''All horses deserve a second chance just like those men.''
Dorian Brown Pham as Stella Davis

All seems to be going according to plan until Stella's ''best friend'' invites her sister, an animal right's extremist, to town. Meredith Parrish (Sharon Stone) shows up and threatens to shut Stella and her PREP program down. Meredith, a billionaire, uses her massive wealth, wily media savvy and charismatic power to turn the town against Stella. It is only a matter of time until the pressure might cause Stella to fold.

Her part as ''Meredith Parish'' is based on the life of the real animal rights activist and billionaire wife Madeleine Pickens, who has been working for the welfare of wild horses in the USA for years and has only recently prevented 30,000 horses from being euthanized in order to free pastureland for cattle breeding.

Does Stella have what it takes to endure? Will Meredith convince her that all animals should run free in the wild? Are the inmates worth rehabilitating? Can they be saved?
