A runaway orphan, young Sonora (Gabrielle Anwar) persists at a menial job mucking stables in Doc Carver's traveling stunt show. Her great wish is to become a death-defying "diving girl," but Doc (Cliff Robertson) refuses her pleas. Undaunted, Sonora's gutsy resolve finally convinces him to give her a break. On the brink of stardom, however, a cruel twist of fate threatens to destroy her dream. With the help of a loving friend (Michael Schoeffling), Sonora must prove that if you want something badly enough, anything is possible!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken is a coming-of-age story about a determined and persistent young orphan. It might be inspiring for young viewers and teach them a bit about the Great Depression. Sonora falls quite a bit while training and bloodies her nose, and a major injury later in the film may be tough to take for younger viewers. But on the whole, the film is filled with positive messages of self-reliance and pursuing your dreams.
