    • Synopsis
    • An underdog story in the vein of "The Commitments" and "Cool Runnings". As the smallest football nation in the world prepare to take on the mighty Brazil, all of Northern Ireland's hopes and dreams are exposed in a night of exhilaration and anguish. Told through the eyes of a young boy, set against the backdrop of the 1986 World Cup, this is the true story of the characters on and off the pitch, and their ardent supporters at home who put their differences aside in their belief of the impossible.
