Film Description

A comedy of manners in which a West Indian cricket team from Brixton travels to a Suffolk village to play against the local team as the culmination of the village's 'Third World Week'. Director Horace Ove subtly explores and undermines white and black stereotypes and succeeds in linking two familiar but strange cultures through the simple device of a sports game.
