Set in a former mining village in Wales against the backdrop of current austerity, this gem of a documentary tells the true story of a group of friends who decide to take on the elite 'sport of kings' and breed themselves a racehorse. Raised on a slagheap allotment, their foal, Dream Alliance, grows into an unlikely champion, beating the finest thoroughbreds, before suffering a near fatal accident. Nursed back to health by his loving owners - for whom he's become a source of inspiration and hope - he re-enters the fray for a heart-stopping comeback. Director Louise Osmond has captured one of the great underdog stories of our time, showing how one woman’s dream can transform a village.
