10 years old Oskar has a dream. He wants to ride the prairies with his mother. Right before summer vacation, Oskar’s mum tells him she is going to America, while he has to stay behind on the farm with his bad-tempered grandfather. Fortunately for Oskar, he gets acquainted with Levi and his short-sighted horse. Together they set up a nutty plan to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a rowboat with Levi’s horse as a passenger, in order to find Oskar’s mum.

১০ বছর বয়সী অস্কারের একটি স্বপ্ন আছে। সে তার মায়ের সাথে ঘুরে-বেড়াতে চায়। গ্রীষ্মের ছুটির আগেই, তার মা তাকে বলে, সে আমেরিকা চলে যাচ্ছে এবং তাকে তার বদমেজাজী নানার সাথে থাকতে হবে। সৌভাগ্যবশত, তার নতুন বন্ধু লেভি এবং তার ঘোড়ার সাথে সে একটি রোমাঞ্চকর অভিযান করে। তারা ঘোড়াটিকেও যাত্রী বানিয়ে নেয় যাতে করে অস্কার তার মাকে খুঁজতে পারে।

10 år gammel Oskar har en drøm. Han vil ri prærien med sin mor. Rett før sommerferien forteller Oskas mamma at hun skal til Amerika, mens han må holde seg på gården med sin dårlige hilsen. Heldigvis for Oskar, blir han kjent med Levi og hans kortsynte hest. Sammen satt de opp en nutty plan for å krysse Atlanterhavet i en robåt med Levis hest som passasjer for å finne Oskars mamma.
