« Go back
This documentary follows Paddy O'Connor Snr and his wife Jean O'Connor as they set out to realise a life-long ambition. Paddy went to England to find work in the 60's and met Jean and they soon married. When they moved back to Ireland and found a house in the country they decided to breed and train a champion greyhound. The story follows the greyhounds from birth right through to their first race. Beautifully paced and structured, 'The Gamble' is a wonderful story of ordinary lives and fulfilled dreams. The strength of this documentary is Paddy and Jean themselves, both with their own individual approaches to the greyhounds and both with very different aspirations.
