Based on a paperback novel (Book 1) by Jayne Bauling, Lunga is excited to join the Soweto Kickers Soccer Club. But he is disappointed when he is only selected for the D team – he knows his father will see this as a failure, especially as there are girls on the team and the coach is a woman. When bullies from other teams try to keep Lunga off the field, it is only his father who can help to solve the situation. But will he?
