A group of Iranian girls attempt to defy the law and watch a football match, a real-life, World Cup qualifier; the film was shot around and in the stadium before and during the game. This entertaining and uplifting comedy is also a biting commentary on a system that allows women to play football but prohibits them from watching men play.
