Purely Belter

Fortnight 2000, Feature film, 1h37


Purely Belter is a heart-warming comedy about two young boys who won’t give up on the pursuit of their dreams. Two Geordie juveniles, Gerry and Sewell, set out on a seemingly impossible mission to find the £1000 required for two season tickets to their beloved football club. Sometimes, as short of good planning and common sense as they are of cash, their main enterprises becomes more hilarious then profitable – and the further away their goal seems to be, the more desperate they are to reach it. The story follows a year’s changing seasons in the lives of the two boys…
