Bush Christmas (1983) aka Prince and the Great Race

Nicole plays Helen

Bush Christmas tells the story of the Thompson family's struggles. Ben and Kate Thompson have to pay off the mortgage on their homestead by January 1st or they lose everything; manager Bill and lead singer Sly of a struggling outback band find themselves desperately broke and decide to "borrow" the Thompson's prize racehorse to run a few races and recoup their loses; and finally, the two Thompson children, Helen and John along with a British cousin and a ranch hand Manalpuy decide to chase after the horse rustlers and retrieve the family's beloved stallion. The film follows the two inept horse thieves trying to make their comic way across an inhospitable terrain, and the children braving unexpected dangers, as when they fall into an abandoned mine shaft that starts to fill up with water. When these various adventures are resolved, the Thompson family is faced with a final, fateful chance to pay off their mortgage by entering their recaptured racehorse in a New Year's Day cross-country race.
