Two best friends spend an afternoon on a football field, dreaming of making it onto the local team. However, dreams come with a price: when a group of older boys interrupt their game, one of them sees it as an opportunity to prove himself, while the other one senses something more sinister is at play.

Director's statement

Many childhoods were marked by relationships formed on a football field. The roles played on this ʻstageʼ were always the same; it was only us who were taking different ones while growing up.
