Land Of My Father
Feeling isolated and alienated in her new surroundings, and struggling with the fact that people speak Welsh, she continues her rebellious crusade of shoplifting.
After an altercation with her father on the matter, she flees, happening into the training ground of the local women’s rugby team, only to wind up needing the attention of a medic in the clubhouse.
Spotting old photographs of her father on the walls, from his glory days as a young player and local hero, fate (and the girls in the team, in need of both coaching and a new player) conspires to bring both our heroine and her father to the club.
This union inspires our young protagonist to not only embrace her cultural heritage, but to heal the rift between father and daughter.
