From locker room to boardroom, All In The Game
rips open the underbelly of our national game to reveal the seedy and cut-throat dealings of a fictional Premiership club. Here, money and power are the driving forces behind the game. Local hero and football manager Frankie (Ray Winstone) is torn between loyalty to his son (Danny Dyer) and the club he loves. But when his son's underhand negotiations look set to make him a fortune, the pressure hots up and the game is almost forgotten. Greed and manipulation replace football, and relationships between fan and club, player and manager, and father and son all break down. There are no heroes in this game.
