A tough football tale about a disadvantaged lad with a thieving father
Imagine being a talented footballer - yet never being allowed to play?
No football - ever. That's the law as laid down by Flint's bad-tempered, bullying father: a man with a dodgy back and an even dodgier means of earning a living - as a petty thief. But nothing can keep Flint from playing football for long. And when he is offered a place in a local team, suddenly Dad no longer seems to mind! Flint's over the moon - until he realizes what Dad's real motives are...
A tough, hard-hitting and action-packed football tale.
