brief synopsis

Negative Numbers is the true story of a juvenile detention center in Tbilisi, Georgia in the early 2000's. Two ex professional rugby players took up the challenge to help these young offenders by bringing rugby in to the centre. During their time they met many of the young inmates and wrote down their stories whilst training the boys. This is a film off those recounted stories. "When you have to decide which family you really belong to"
