Lent Week 5
You can’t be what you can’t see. Teetering on the edge of manhood, 18 year old Jonno spends his summer days playing footy with his best mate Sol. He’s desperate for a role model but on Holly Grove council estate, a decent father figure is hard to come by, and the only heroes he’s ever known wear football boots. He’s never met his dad and normally this doesn't cross his mind. Except on days like today. One fateful Father’s Day in East London, Jonno finally comes face-to-face with the dad he’s always wanted. New bonds are formed whilst others come crashing down and Jonno has to learn that there is more than one way to be a "good man.”
