Michelle Payne has dreamed of the impossible since she was a child: winning the Melbourne Cup, Australia’s most prestigious horse race. Michelle is the youngest of 10 children, raised by her father Paddy and is willing to do anything to pursue her dream of becoming a jockey. A family tragedy and a bad fall, however, risk cutting off her career and life. It will be thanks to the help of her loving father and brother Steve that Michelle will not give up and against everything and everyone will get back on horseback, this time on the famous Prince of Penzance. Together they will overcome insurmountable obstacles in their bid to compete in the 2015 Melbourne Cup. The rest… is history.
