UK 2015, 85 min, documentary. Director: Louise Osmond

“Unfolding with a sincerity that dares you to roll your eyes, this warmhearted documentary by Louise Osmond wallows in its working-class roots like a horse in clover.” — Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

A Sundance winner, this Welsh-based documentary recounts the inspirational journey of a “long shot”. In a beleaguered former coal mining town, one barmaid rallies a group of friends to pool £10 per week each to breed, raise, and train a racehorse: Dream Alliance.

Breaking social barriers by competing against some of the wealthiest racehorse owners in the UK, this is a vision of beautiful horses and class consciousness, dreams and determination. Warm and funny, it’s a “Dream that took us to places you couldn’t even imagine.”
