Synopsis:
Teheran in April 2006. Iran’s national women’s team and a local Berlin women’s football team play their first official friendly match. The atmosphere at the stadium is super-charged with girl power. Although their only desire was to play football together, it has taken the young women of both teams a whole year to get where they are today. Theirs has been a battle against testosterone, arbitrariness and oppression.
