No Ball Games cuts between multiple groups of working-class kids from throughout the UK - a pair of Somalian brothers in Cardiff, a champion kickboxer in Yorkshire, a Roma traveller in Glasgow - and attempts to draw parallels between the way that these children play. It celebrates the resourceful, optimistic energy of the kids and their determination to find fun in every corner of their worlds.
