A compelling feature based on the true story of 16-year-old Swedish footballer Martin Bengtsson, Tigers exposes the dark underbelly of the beautiful game. Martin (Erik Enge) is relentless in his commitment to become a top player; he pushes both mind and body to the extreme. His ambition and hard work are rewarded when he is recruited by Italian club Inter Milan, but now the real pressure begins as he strives to stand out in a world of extreme competition and hedonistic excess. As one of his new team mates says, ‘Guess you were expensive… Everybody hates you already.’ Tigers is raw, bruising and a startling vision of what the supposedly beautiful game has become.
