Probably no horse race had a more extraordinary effect on a nation than the running of Australia's 2002 Melbourne Cup. At the heart of this true story is Damien Oliver, , a young jockey who loses his only brother in a tragic racing accident just days before the Melbourne Cup. The race fall hauntingly reflecting of the way their father died 27 years earlier.
