Hosted by Galin McGowan, this magical Irish film, released in 1992, is about two young boys living with their widowed, alcoholic father. Their difficult existence is uplifted by the arrival of their nomadic grandfather, who has brought with him a magical horse from legend—Tír na nÓg (meaning “Land of Eternal Youth” in Irish). When crooked cops discover the prized animal, they commandeer it, intending to sell it as a racing horse, but the boys resolve to rescue the mythical creature. They escape the poverty of a north Dublin council estate, and ride “Into the West” where they find that Tír na nÓg is not just a horse.
