TIGERS is a life and death rollercoaster ride through the modern-day football industry. With a unique perspective on the world of professional football training, Sandahl tells the true story of football prodigy Martin Bengtsson. A coming-of-age drama about a young man’s burning obsession in a world where everything, and everyone, has a price tag.

Martin is one of the most promising football talents Sweden has ever seen. At sixteen, his lifelong dream comes true when he is bought by one of Italy’s most prestigious clubs. Yet that dream comes at a very high price in terms of sacrifice, dedication, pressure and - most of all - loneliness. After a life-threatening incident, Martin begins to question whether this is actually the life he yearned for. TIGERS shines a light on the pressures and mental health issues faced by young people training at the highest level of football.
