A community of Welsh underdogs need to find second chances in this entertaining, encouraging movie. A group of village folks rally together to breed and train a race horse, who does not disappoint despite hurdles on the race courses, including a life-threatening injury.
There are a few crass elements in this story of a Welsh community that struggle against set-backs but who prevail together while celebrating their Welsh heritage. The community works together to breed and train a race horse, but the process of working and winning together is more important than gambling to win monetary prices.
Although the movie is rooted in small community life, it has universally significant themes of valuing the following: community, family, marriage, nature, animals and more.
