When Jan Vokes (Toni Collette), a Welsh cleaner and bartender, overhears a customer (Damien 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 a match for the million-pound racehorses he comes up against. A crowd-pleasing dramatic take on a true story.
