AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Following a run in with the law, Ben Valentine (Rhys Muldoon) finds himself in a strange country town. He is sentenced to 200 hours of community service and forced to coach the town's "no-hoper" football team. If they don't win three out of the next four games not only will the team have to merge with their arch rivals, but the town will also lose its precious pie factory which will have to be sold. Embraced heart and soul by the townsfolk, this one-time drifter learns how to live and hope again - and so does the town. Valentine's Day is a tale of hope and redemption.'
