Toni Collette stars in this rousing story of triumph over adversity, via one woman’s extraordinary ambition to breed a champion racehorse in her home village. Helmed by Welsh TV director Euros Lyn, it’s a dramatic take on the true story covered in the 2015 documentary.

When Jan Vokes (Collette), a Welsh cleaner and bartender, overhears a customer (Damian Lewis) at the pub talking about a racehorse he once owned, she is inspired to acquire her own. Managing to persuade her neighbours and friends to invest in her crazy scheme, they proceed, naming their foal ‘Dream Alliance’ and rearing him together. Against all odds, he rises through the ranks and proves himself to be more than a match for the multi-million pound racehorses he comes up against – a true people’s champion from a working class Welsh community.

A well-cast, artfully handled effort that exercises sufficient restraint to really earn its requisite laughter and tears.
