Synopsis by Olivia Cantor
Directed by Euros Lyn, this British comedy film stars Toni Collette as Jan Vokes, a Welsh bartender who comes up with the idea of breeding a horse intended for racing. Since she lives in a town that is down on its luck, her neighbors start pitching in and participate in financing for the horse. They see the horse as their chance of redeeming their town and lifting their spirits as it races up the ranks, hopefully to become a champion thoroughbred. Based on a true story.
