The emotional fall-out from adoption

SENT OFF is the story of a 16 year-old who’s just signed professional forms with a Premiership football club. A journalist is sent to do a background story on him, but there are elements missing from the story so she does some digging around and accidentally discovers he’s been adopted but never been told by his adoptive parents. Trouble is, the mother who gave the baby up for adoption is actually the journalist’s best friend, so when she reveals to her friend that she’s found her ‘lost’ baby son there are huge emotional repercussions all round.

We produced this in the North East, which apart from maybe Glasgow is the most tribal football society on earth! But you can choose any football club you like, from Plymouth Albion to Swansea City to Inverness Caledonian Thistle!
