Gail Raffu was once a respected racehorse trainer known for her unconventional training methods. The she became part owner of the thoroughbred Urgent Envoy, and everything changed. The horse's co--owners pushed Gail to speed up her training methods, and eventually made her race him too early. The horse developed a hairline fracture. One more race would kill him.
So on Christmas Eve, Gail stole her own horse. A modern--day outlaw at age 53, Gail learned the law at night while living out of her truck in order to move the horse to safe havens, evade private investigators, and take on a powerful Los Angeles attorney determined to crush her in court. As she stood up for the humane treatment of racing horses, Gail also took on the system that could crush them.
