A new animated comedy from Sussex-based Gigglefish Studios.

Strike is the heart-warming coming-of-age story of the struggle for Mungo to save not only his family, but his community and to achieve his dream - playing soccer for his country in the Wild Cup in Russia.

Mungo Morrison is a young mole who is due to begin work at his proud father's side in their hometown's legendary gold mine. While his best friends are excited to be in the mine, Mungo secretly dreams of becoming a professional footballer. However, desperate not to upset his father, as well as being a small mole and unable to play football in bright light, Mungo sadly resigns himself to life as a miner. When the mine is forced to shut down after a mysterious accident, an evil and gold-obsessed supervillain known only as 'The Boss', attempts to bully the townsfolk into selling him the mine. Against all odds and with a little help from his crazy friends, Mungo begins an epic adventure of thrills, laughs, action and danger, as he hurtles towards the Wild Cup football finals in Russia and a final, breathtaking showdown with 'The Boss.'

'It's an open secret, the British are the champions of feature animation. Strike is surprisingly good, very well done, and totally hilarious' - Avoir Alire
