Synopsis

To the alarm of his traditional Italian soccer loving father, Mario wants a genuine Australian Rules football for his tenth birthday. Vito fears that if Aussie Rules wins out over his beloved soccer, it could for shadow terrible things for his family and guide Mario away from his Italian heritage. It’s only with some devine intervention that Papa realizes, if he gives a little, he’ll gain a lot, and ultimately it was only the shape of the ball that was different.
