Word of a legendary tribe of magic ponies in the northern territories reaches the ears of a bored Roman senator who is stuck in Gaul. He sends two rival, trouble making jr. commanders on a fool’s errand to see if the legend is real or not. The two, along with a small detail, travel up through Gaul into northern Germania and find the legend is true, but only slightly. The pony tribe had been at war with the local barbarians and only one small family is left. Feeling that the loss of such noble creatures would be a tragedy, the two commanders work together to save what is left of the ponies' race. The ponies say there is an isolated island north of Britannia where their ancestors went some thousand years before. With their objective in sight, the Roman soldiers brave the treacheries of Germania and risk it all to save the last family of ponies.
