Held yearly for centuries, the Ocean of Fire a 3,000 mile survival race across the Arabian Desert. In 1890, a wealthy Sheik invited an American and his horse to enter the race for the first time. Frank T. Hopkins was a cowboy and dispatch rider for the US cavalry who had once been billed as the greatest rider the West had ever known. The Sheik would put this claim to the test, pitting the American cowboy and his mustang, Hidalgo, against the worlds greatest Arabian horses and Bedouin riders but a race for his very survival as he and his horse, Hidalgo, attempt the impossible.
