  • Synopsis

    The son of an upper-class middle-class Belfast family, a dental student, is also the star centre-forward for Glenfield. He is offered a lucrative transfer deal, and makes the headlines, much to the disgust of his family. Less publicly, however, his busy father's near-estrangement from his wife and children through overwork is bringing its own problems.
