Description:

An animated film-parable about an old horse whose life is coming to its finale. But before his death, fate gives him one last fantastic vision - of a world filled with endless life and love.

The film is set to the music of John Zorn performed by Eric Friedlander (cello), Rob Berger (piano) and Greg Cohen (double bass). The soundtrack for the film (including a lot of extra music that didn't make it in) was released on the CD Filmworks XIX: The Rain Horse.

"Boy" is the original Russian title, but it has mostly been called "The Rain Horse" in English.
