Over The Line


It is the proudest moment of Jack’s life – his debut as a professional footballer. Now he has a chance to achieve his dream of playing for his country.

But it’s 1914 and the world is at war. Talk of sportsmen’s cowardice leads to the formation of a Footballers’ Battalion and Jack has little choice but to join up. The promise of a Cup in Flanders offers a glimmer of hope, but Jack and his team-mates will have to survive a waking nightmare if they are ever to play again.

Based on the true story of a sporting hero’s experiences in the trenches.
