Director's Statement

Being a filmmaker and also someone involved in the sport of polo, it took me a long time to find a story that would inspire, educate and emotionally engage a wide audience who know
very little about the sport.

Many people associate polo with its exclusivity and champagne
flowing parties. Inspired by real events, this is a beautiful story how hard work, commitment and determination can change destiny and triumph over adversity.

Our vision was to create an inspiring and emotionally engaging film that shows the grace and power of the sport whilst also providing a beautiful insight into the horsemanship, skill and
dedication needed, the healing capacity of horses and the importance of retraining of racehorses.
