75 mins

Documentary

A group of exceptional young ladies in Khartoum are determined toplay football professionally. They are prepared to defy the ban imposedby Sudan’s Islamic Military government and they will not take no for ananswer.

Their battle to get officially recognized as Sudan’s National Woman’steam is fearless, courageous and often laughable. But their struggle isunwavering.

Through the intimate portrait of these women over a number of yearswe follow their moments of hope and deception. Despite the NationalFootball Federation getting FIFA funds earmarked for the women’steams, this team continues to be marginalized. However, there is a newspark of hope when the elections within the federation could mean realchange of the entire system.
