Toni Collette stars in the true story of one woman's extraordinary ambition to breed and raise a champion racehorse in her village.
Jan Vokes, a cleaner and barmaid, recruits her initially reluctant husband Brian (Owen Teale) and local accountant Howard Davies (Damian Lewis) to help her bring together a syndicate of local people to breed a foal - which they name Dream Alliance. With little experience but a lot of heart, the villagers rear Dream and against all the odds he rises through the ranks, proving himself to be more than a match for the multi-million-pound racehorses.
But much more than this, Dream begins to alter the lives of everyone in the syndicate, not least Jan's. Hes everything to her: friend, confidant, and an escape from a life of always putting other peoples needs first.
Dream Horse is 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.
