In February 2014 thousands of Newcastle and Sunderland supporters faced off during lunch time hours prior to the second derby match of the season. The film focuses on the minutes before the game and shows the angst, antagonism and rivalry between opposing fans, but also togetherness – the football supporter being a part of a group.
