Everyone knows that Homer loves Australian Rules football. But ever since his dad moved away and his mum was drafted in the women’s league, something has changed. He’s spending more time fixing clothes with his grandfather than kicking goals with his friends. When Homer’s upgraded school shirt becomes the talk of the playground, he sees a business opportunity that could make him enough money to visit his dad.
But the more stitches Homer makes, the more that everything else in his life begins to unravel. His friends don’t understand him, his dad feels further away than ever, and even playing football doesn’t feel like the escape it used to. Can Homer find a way to get back to how things used to be? And what does it mean if he can’t?
