  • Overview
    Austin Whitworth, the cash-strapped owner of Blackton Rovers, has sold his star centre-forward, Jack Metherell, to a rival club on the eve of a crucial game. But what we see is Jack, the working-class hero, undergoing a series of moral tests. First, his integrity is severely challenged when Austin asks him to throw the match. And then Jack's manly independence comes under the microscope when Austin's elder daughter, Elsie, seeks to prize him away from the clutches of the domineering mother with whom he lives.
