The true story of Dream Alliance, an amazing racehorse raised by a small town Welsh waitress. She convinces her neighbors to dedicate their savings to his breeding in the hope that he will win races against the elite. “True to the tried-and-true formula of English social comedies based on real-life events, this Welsh SEABISCUIT exudes warmth and bonhomie along its conscientiously plotted course. (…) The story exploits familiar threads, with an expected mix of zaniness and emotion. A true ode to the culture of Wales, the film is vividly realized, with particular attention paid to the exciting horse races. “(Louis-Paul Rioux, Médiafilm)
