Published with The Apology

Nothing ever happens in small town Pintoon. Except the footy. Everyone loves the footy. But the Pintoon Parrots can’t seem to break their losing streak. That is until they change their line up. Suddenly it’s goal after goal, and win after win. But after a pre-match party gets out of hand, the team’s new forwards might struggle to bring Pintoon the grand final victory they expect.

Created through workshops with students from regional high schools around Victoria, The Forwards deals with football culture, alcohol abuse and reckless behaviours in small country communities.
