This film is about women finding empowerment in a society with limited rights. An amateur female soccer team from Berlin visits Iran to play against the Iranian female national soccer team that until now has never had the chance to play against another team. For Iranian women, soccer means freedom and power. They are not allowed at stadiums to watch games and are not allowed to play with uncovered arms or legs -- or without headscarves.
