Based on the true story of one woman’s extraordinary ambition to breed and raise a champion racehorse in her home village: Jan Vokes, a cleaner and barmaid, manages to persuade her neighbours and friends to invest in her crazy scheme and together they name the foal ‘Dream Alliance’. With little experience but a lot of heart, the collective of villagers rear Dream, and against all odds he rises through the ranks. Dream proves himself to be more than a match for the multi-million pound racehorses he comes up against - he’s a true people’s champion, taking on the establishment at their own game. But more than this, Dream begins to alter the lives of everyone in this small community, not least Jan’s. He is everything to her: friend, confidant and an escape from her everyday life.
A powerful story of triumph over adversity and a tale of how a woman strives to make her dream a reality, and unites her entire community.
