In 1911, eleven year old Avram Escovitz is shipped off to Scotland by his mother to escape conscription into the Russian army. Growing up in the heart of the Kahn family in the tightly knit community in the Gorbals, Avram discovers that he has a natural talent for playing football. He dreams of playing for Celtic, but the war intervenes. He is sent to work with his adopted uncle, the orthodox Jew Mendel Cohen, as a credit draper, peddling goods on credit to the crofters of the Western Higlands. There, a chance enconter with a Royal Corps pilot leads to fresh possiblities.
