There, Jon discovers a new side to himself, especially when he accidentally breaks the team captain’s hand. One day, the kids witness a violent incident between one of the members of the opposing team and his father. They decide to save the boy from his fearsome parent, but no one will believe them, not even the chief of police and the victim’s uncle. It will take all of their courage and ingenuity to get the grownups to listen, while on the way they make enviable friendships and unforgettable memories both on and off the pitch! An exciting film based on a popular children’s novel series, with record sales in Iceland.
