Based on real events, this is the story of a strong woman battling for change.

Afrooz is the captain of the national Iranian women’s Futsal team (Ed.: a type of hard-court, 5-a-side football). After years of hard work, her dream is finally about to become reality as she will be leading her team in the Women’s Asia Cup’s Final in Malaysia. But as she goes through security at Tehran airport, she finds that her estranged husband, a famous television host, has banned her from leaving the country. Supported by a close friend and fellow player, she decides to take the fight to her husband and the arch-conservative Futsal federation.

“... intelligently written, well performed and emotionally rewarding” Variety
