Directed by Simon Baker. With Robert Ristic, Peyvand Sadeghian, Leon Sua, Anton Saunders. At the iconic Hackney Marshes in East London, Lea Valley Rangers take to the field in a game they must-win against Forest Road Athletic. If they can pull it off, they'll win the league, their first...
A unique, touching and action-packed comedy from executive producer Rio Ferdinand, starring Anton Saunders (Luther, EastEnders), Leon Sua (Cuckoo, Street Fighter: Resurrection) and Waleed Akhtar (The Intent 2: The Come Up, Miss You Already, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen).
Action unfolds both on, and off the pitch at London’s iconic Hackney Marshes, as Lea Valley Rangers prepare for the most important match in club history. Whilst one drama plays out in plain sight however, many others simmer under the surface. Long suffering club manager, Nick, struggles to save his marriage whilst guiding his team to victory. There’s the club secretary, guilty of embezzling the end of season funds; troubled teen Jack, hoping to confront his estranged father; a referee coming to terms with a parent’s illness; and adding to the tension, the unexpected arrival of professional team scouts…
Emotions flare, secrets are laid-bared and relationships are left hanging in the balance as the match moves towards its volatile conclusion. It’s not always such a beautiful game.
