This powerful and affecting look at issues of racial intolerance, mateship and football in a small Australian town is an accomplished adaptation of Phillip Gwyne's popular teen novel Deadly, Unna?

Centering around 16-year-old Blacky (Nathan Phillips), the edgy and very white Pickles (Tom Budge), charismatic indigenous kid (Luke Carroll) and his lovely sister, Clarence (Lisa Flanagan), the film follows the fluctuating fortunes of the Prospect Bay football team, vividly highlighting the importance of the great game and the passion it inspires in a country community.
