A rambunctious, heartwarming David and Goliath comedy from Australia.
Bodgy Creek is a struggling town. The drought won’t let up, jobs are scarce and the footy team looks like it will either have to merge with another club or fold. Former football star Troy Carrington is coaxed into rescuing the team by young Neil, who is struggling with the recent loss of his father. Teaming up with Neil’s mum Angie who runs a nearby refugee support centre, they unite to recruit the new arrivals to save the team – but this proves to be an unpopular move with some residents.
“A warm and engaging sports comedy, The Merger is a winner.” - FilmInk
