Afrooz (Baran Kasari) has given her life to football. Now, she is about to captain Iran’s national futsal team as they head to the final of the Asian Nations Cup in Malaysia. That’s when her estranged husband Yasser (Amir Jadidi) exercises his legal right and refuses her permission to leave the country. Thus begins a battle in which the fiercely determined Afrooz uses any means necessary to fight the everyday injustices faced by women in Iran. A thought-provoking, high stakes drama that grabs at your emotions and makes essential viewing in the age of #MeToo.
