About the film:
The film is about the 70s soccer star Laurie Cunningham who was the first black player to represent England at any level. He also dated a white girl, very publicly, much to the disgust of the average 70s football hooligan. Cunningham was the first English player to sign for Spanish soccer superstars Real Madrid, let alone the first black player. He died in a suspect car accident, aged 33, after getting involved with the seamy side of the Costa Del Sol.
