In modern football, Steven Gerrard is a rarity – a superstar player who stayed loyal to his hometown club. He became perhaps the greatest player in the history of Liverpool FC but did so at a point when success and trophies were on the wane – and it became his personal mission to lift the famous club back to the top. But with Gerrard that loyalty, which raised him to God-like status with Liverpool fans, could be an unbearable burden, bringing with it a profound sense of responsibility to live up to their and his own expectations.
The film is a personal story of profound highs and lows, set in the highly pressured, ruthless world of professional football, at a time when the values of the game were radically shifting. It offers a penetrating insight into the experience of one of the best known English Footballers of modern times and the pressures, both external and internal, that both drove him forward to glory and defeated him.
