In the aggressive and often hostile world of youth grass roots football Adam (17) faces an ultimatum from the team captain, Mike, when they discover Adam’s best friend Tom is gay.
S Y N O P S I S
Colours is a gripping drama about Adam (17) and his battle to resolve a situation that spirals out of control when he and the team discover his best friend, and football team mate, Tom is gay. The team is led by the aggressive and malicious captain, Mike, who gives Adam the ultimatum to either be on their side or Tom’s. Adam is left with the choice of standing by his friend Tom who has lied to him and caused the position he’s in, potentially facing losing all of his other friends and having his world turned upside down, or Adam keeps his life stable in siding with Mike and leads Tom into a situation that’s likely to have a terrible outcome.
