Unfortunately, we are unable to screen this title on our virtual channel but are proud that it was an official selection for the 2020 Annapolis Film Festival.

Collette stars as Jan, a bartender who decides to breed a racehorse in her Welsh village after hearing a story from the local pub braggart Howard (played by Damian Lewis). With very little money and no experience, Jan convinces her neighbors to chip in their meager earnings to help raise the horse named “Dream Alliance.” As the horse rises through the ranks, Jan and the townsfolk are pitted against the racing elite in a race for the national championship. This amusing and inspiring film is based on the true story as contained in the documentary Dark Horse which won the Audience Award at the Sundance Film Festival in 2015.
