Inspired by the beloved novel, Beyond Black Beauty is a coming-of-age dramedy that follows Jolie Dumont, an Olympic-driven equestrian whose journey is suddenly halted when her mother, Janelle, moves them from their posh Belgium life to Janelle's childhood home in Baltimore. Jolie struggles to find roots but as she bonds with an equally spirited horse named Black Beauty, she learns to embrace the family's ranch where Black cowboys have been entrenched in their DNA for over a century. In this multi-generational tale of adversity, humility and love, Jolie finally discovers the value of family and home. From Amazon Studios, the Emmy-winning production company Sinking Ship Entertainment and Leif Films, Beyond Black Beauty is executive produced by Pilar Golden, Leif and Agnes Bristow, J.J. Johnson and Carla de Jong.
