The once-handsome painted horse and his merry-go-round friends long for the days when they were young, beautiful, and filled with joy. A severe summer storm adds to the carousel’s woes by leaving the animal rides scarred and disheartened. The owner calls his granddaughter to restore Paint, her favorite childhood ride, and his popular companions on the twirling platform. Avery and her art school classmates lovingly labor together to reawaken Masterson’s Magical Merry-Go-Round.
