Cinderheath is in a state of molten flux. A mosque is about to be built on the site of the iconic steelworks. The 'Tipton Three' are in Guantanamo, kids run wild on the grounds. A schoolboy whom Rob is teaching to read is stabbed in a gang attack. Within this cauldron, two local football teams, split along racial lines, play a Sunday league decider-'a match to spark a Black Country race war' says the press. While England plays Argentina for the World Cup, the characters gather-Rob, Glenn, Jim, Tom, and Stacey behind the bar-to see what hope and solidarity they still share.
"Beautiful, moving and important." - Catherine O'Flynn
