The Screen Guide

What happens when the dreams of youth collide with the horse-trading that is the modern world of professional sport? THE DRAFT tells of the classic 'rite of passage' tale, back-dropped against the hard-nosed, corporate world of sport wheeling and dealing. Brendan doesn't think he is a very good footballer, but sticks at it hoping to support his single mum. Adam is Brendan's best friend, another 17-year-old, his own worst critic. Des completes the triangle of friendship, encountering the other boys at the Draft Camp. Des is a brilliant Aboriginal player from Perth, rumoured to be the best young football talent in the country. THE DRAFT unfolds with a depth and intimacy rarely seen in documentaries - a universal story of dreams, and that which is sacrificed in trying to achieve them.
