John, an ambitious young copper, is sent undercover into the hardcore football gangs to track down the ‘generals’ – the shadowy figures who orchestrate the violence. Gradually, the hard drinking, hard fighting macho world – where Saturday’s match and Saturday’s rumble are all that matters – proves irresistible and John slowly finds himself turning into one of the thugs he has been sent to destroy.
