Professional footballer Leon Mckenzie spent 15 years working his way up to the Premier League until injury struck and he spiralled into a deep depression. In a world where weakness is unacceptable, this film explores the dark side of football and how many of its players are suffering in silence.

Shot in and around his home in Northampton, the film shows a side of the game that has long been ignored.

Leon is part of the film series England Your England. For more films and information visit, or
