SYNOPSIS

 

Traumatised by an abusive past that has rendered him mute, Sebastian finds work as a groom in a polo yard working for an aspiring young polo player who has it all.  When his employer is unable to re-train Liberty, a nervous, failed racehorse, Sebastian bonds with the wayward animal sensing it too has suffered and secretly trains as a polo player ultimately changing both their lives.

DIRECTORS VISION

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 is 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.
