BLOODY FOOTY

Large_film_12736622_photo1
To the alarm of his soccer-loving Italian father, Mario wants a genuine Australian Rules football for his tenth birthday. Vito fears that if Aussie Rules wins out over his beloved soccer, it could foreshadow terrible things for his family and guide Mario away from his Italian heritage. It's only with some divine intervention that Papa realizes if he gives a little, he'll gain a lot, and ultimately it is only the shape of the ball that was different. In turns both hilarious and heartwarming, father and son ultimately join hands on different fields.
