A mother and daughter clash over the not-so-beautiful game

Hairdresser Michelle arrives at a muddy rugby ground, furious to find that her 14 year-old daughter, Jodie, has cut her face playing rugby league. Despite her daughter’s protests, Michelle bans Jodie from ever playing again.

Set in present day Leeds, Scrum is an affecting look at a mother-daughter relationship that reminds us sometimes the people we love aren’t quite who we expect them to be, and that’s OK.
