Grandpa Ward gives a horse he found to his grandchildren, who keep it in their tower-block flat in Dublin. The horse is stolen from them, and the two young boys set out to find it and flee on it.
Several horses were used for the white horse during filming. Mostly they were specially trained stunt/trick horses, but for a few shots a purebred Irish Connemara Pony was also used.
You're not gonna return there again. You have to pretend your name is Murphy. Do you understand that?
Neither boy can read until Tito gets a few lessons, but still can't read well, however, when the horse takes them to their mother's grave Ossie, who has not learned to read, asks (at around 1h 18 mins) "Why is my birthday on that stone?"
