The Day I Got the Sack: Kieron's Story (Enhanced DVD)
Kieron is an amateur soccer player who is passed over for a pro contract and then his team drops him. After this experience he believes that his sports career is over. Business coach Sháá Wasmund helps him assess his skills and determine whether or not he has what it takes to be a pro soccer player. She connects him a well-known sports announcer who helps him build contacts in the soccer world. She advises Kieron on how to cope and succeed in a competitive economy. She also gets him a job at MOBO Awards in London since he has a love for music and design, which are both backup fields for him if his soccer career does not work out. (24 minutes)
