Dream big. Easy to say. Not quite so easy to do when you work in a footie boot sweatshop and dream of being a World Cup star… Budi’s plan is simple. He won’t spend the rest of his life sweating over each football boot he makes, each stitch he sews. He’s fed up of the ugly side of the beautiful game.

How hard will Budi fight to save his dream – and his life?
