The story of a young man with the gift of football who threw it all away and ended up in prison, on the way there he learned the art of treachery by selling out his team mates on a bad penalty. Once inside he's picked on by the screws, hated by the prisoners, who viewed him as the one who had the chances they would have killed for, beaten up, a pawn in everyones hidden agenda.
He's asked to coach the football team, and when push comes to shove what does he do? Does he go down the same road of betrayal as before, only this time he's not letting his own his country down, it's just a bunch of worthless, no good prisoners. What does he do?
There is dreadful tragedy, utter madness, corruption, violence, sudden death, with a sprinkling of humour to make the dish slightly more palatable. A tale of the human condition at its worst. How can anything good come of this mixture of criminal chaos? This wonderfuil film shows just how it can happen.
