Acclaimed director Marc Evans (Hinterland, Patagonia), Academy Award-winning associate producer James Marsh (Man on Wire), executive producers Mai Pope and Edward Thomas and producer and documentary-maker Gwenllian Hughes present 'Jack to a King: The Swansea Story', a documentary film that recounts the remarkable tale of how a 'rag tag' band of builders, housewives, teachers and travel agents came together to save their beloved football club and ended up turning their city into a worldwide brand. Through archival footage and intimate interviews, this is Swansea City AFC's incredible journey from the sale of the club for just £1 to their £90 million promotion to the Premier League - a heart-warming and captivating must watch whether you're a fan of the beautiful game or not. This is a film about belief, about obsession, about loyalty, about people power, and about love.

a good account of the fall and rise of Swansea from almost going out of existence to winning promotion to the premier league .
The only disappointment was the promise of this being a Hollywood film as a docudrama ,it is in fact a documentary plain and simple as for Hollywood the clue comes in the title credits (a Y.J.B.) production , For those not from south wales (YOU JACK BA*****S).
