Tak Giu (Kick Ball) is a cult indie film about soccer culture in Singapore. Released online in 2005 prior to YouTube, it has gathered over 100,000 views.
Having taken up the challenge of a friendly match, 3 soccer-crazy boys realise that it is not easy to find a good, free public soccer field in Singapore.....if there's any at all. Through their journey they encounter obnoxious care-takers, locked-up fences, deterring weather and a persistent policeman. Will they be able to find their dream soccer pitch?
The story explores the issues of soccer amenities, and the attitudes of Singaporeans towards local and foreign soccer.
