    A Subtle Sadness focuses on the family and personal history of Frank Hunter. A man of considerable talents, in both football and politics, he brings a peculiarly Scottish approach to the application of those talents. It is the story of a 100 year fight for Scottish Home Rule, from 1890 to 1990. It is also the story of the emotional and political impact of Scotland's quest for the World Cup. A Subtle Sadness covers a century of Scottish social, political and football highlights, with disasters and triumphs aplenty, culminating in Glasgow's emergence in 1990 as European City of Culture.
