A short film highlighting the truth behind the life of young footballers in academies, and what happens after they’re released.
This 4-minute short aims to raise awareness about the stories that are rarely told within the game of football. Leaning on his own experiences and those of his friends, Kieran Kenlock pens a tribute for the boys who never made it to the professional game. Giving the audience a perspective of what life is like for millions of young footballers but also athletes across the world who have ever experienced the feeling of missing out on a dream and not having the words to articulate their emotions.
