In the suburbs of a Scottish town, the life of a family quietly revolves around one of their sons’ passion for football. 13-year-old Darren plays youth football for a professional club but his annual ‘Review Night’ is approaching and the family are uncertain if he will remain signed. Mum, Yvonne, struggles with her son’s future and the impact that it will have on her family’s ritual of supporting him play every Sunday, their time, energy and countless hours standing in rain, snow and sunshine, and beyond.
A beautiful and funny portrait between a mother and her teenage son.
