About panel 1

As an inexperienced, young coach in Poland, where the story plays out, Pawel has nothing to do with Arsenal’s glory. Contrary. The first independent job he is undertaking is coaching Red Dragons, the worst football team in the whole country.

But it doesn’t matter for him. Young coach is extremely motivated. Unfortunately very soon he faces serious obstacles. Only two or three players show up to the training sessions. Moreover, the relationship with the club’s president, quite good at the beginning starts to heavily degrade. Pawel realizes that the job he undertook is more demanding than he expected…

“The Dragon Spring” is a sports drama about the harsh and ruthless rules of the sport but the sport is not one and only subject of this movie. “The Dragon Spring” is much more. It’s a universal and powerful story about dreams and dreamers, about losers who never give up, about fighting against the adversity of fate, about friendship and solidarity.

This is a thrilling voice which tells, that even if we are at the bottom, we can be the winners at the end of the road. Everything is up to us. Especially our own life.
