There's only one Jimmy Grimble is a slightly fairy-tale struggle of a young boy trying to appease his passion for the 'beautiful game' by playing for the school's football team. The film is set in a northern city, where poverty and unemployment are rife and shows Jimmy, the protagonist, going through the various challenges life throws at him. The story has many emotional themes such as love, anger, grief and pain; which all revolve around growing up.
Throughout the film, the audience sees Jimmy dealing with growing in a deprived area with an unstable family and deals with issues such as bullying, insecurity and the importance of having and realising your dream.
Jimmy is a young teenager with a passion for football and a lack of self-confidence which prevents him from joining the school football team and getting a chance to show his talent. This isn't helped by the fact that he is getting constant abuse from the vain school bully. However, his luck starts to change when an old homeless woman gives him football boots which are said to be magical.
After overcoming the most unlikely circumstances, Jimmy becomes the flavour
