A hard-edged, pacey thriller examining the legacy of Fascism.
In his study at a provincial, German University, Professor Wolf Kruger awaits the arrival of Anya Rosenberg, a young Jewish researcher who claims to wish to interview him about his new book 'Children of The Wolf.' Outside, beneath Kruger's window Neo-Nazis rally, clashing in confrontation with left-wing opponents. As the conflict intensifies below his window, Kruger checks the war-time revolver in his desk. If Anya is who he thinks she is - he will have to use it!
As a game of cat and mouse begins, long buried bitter issues of tyranny and racial hatred begin to surface, reaching their climax in a soul-shattering conclusion.

The Story of
And a Dream!
LEGEND – The birth of a Football Musical – John Woudberg
As far as we know, this was the first ever full-length musical about football. Taking over a year to research, write and produce, 'LEGEND' tells the story of one of the game's all-time greats Sir Tom Finney and the fans upon whom he had such an unbelievable impact.
'LEGEND' is so much more than a musical about football. It is the story of Preston itself and the dreams of ordinary people played out on the Deepdale pitch – every other Saturday. It is also the story of the ‘under-dog' - Finney was thought too small to make it – and of how passion and commitment can overcome even the greatest obstacles to our dreams.
