Full Plot

In what looks like a council flat, a distracted chain-smoking mom, who's at her wit's end what with the noise of her colicky infant, hangs a twirling ball over his crib. The child, a lad named Midge, quiets immediately. As he grows older, his mum seems oblivious to his existence and to his increasingly adept ball-handling skills. By age 12, Midge and the twirling ball are on the football pitch; but what about mum? The short shows a young baby's first interaction with a ball and follows his obsession through his early years until secondary school. The passing of the years are shown by the matches played on the TV - from Maradona's "hand of god" to Owen's wonderful goal against Argentina in France 98. Tiny Tope Plot not found
