Movie Summary

Dennis C. Lewiston
Released:
2002
Rating:
PG
Based on the true story of Shergar, Ireland's most decorated thoroughbred and perhaps the greatest racehorse of all time, who was kidnapped by IRA terrorists and held for a $2 million ransom. Terrorists Gavin O'Rourke (Mickey Rourke) and Dermot Concannon kidnap Shergar and steal him away to a remote farm. Unbeknownst to the kidnappers, a young teenage runaway named Kevin lives in the hayloft of the farm. When Shergar's owners refuse to pay the ransom, it is up to Kevin, the orphaned son of a jockey who himself dreams of becoming a great rider, to rescue Shergar. With the help of a kindly old stable hand (Ian Holm) and his granddaughter, Kevin embarks on a desperate ride, staying only steps ahead of the kidnappers and the authorities. As Kevin races Shergar toward the Cliffs of Mohar, he faces a monumental decision that will change his life forever!
