Ireland, Co. Mayo 1946. Gillian Morris, a renowned trainer and owner of the racing stable, Castle Gillian, has retreated from the world since the death of his wife; Gill. His son, recently returned from the War, has lost his way in life; and so it is left to Mary, his daughter, to try to keep the stable from wrack and ruin.
A pernicious, and sadistic local landowner, Garret Ward, offers to settle the family’s debt in return for a controlling interest in Castle Gillian; however, marrying Mary is also part of his deal. To save Castle Gillian from foreclosure will need a miracle and the long-standing friendship with a group of Irish Travellers – and a broken down colt named “Benbecula”.
