The Libyan women’s football team has to reckon with the disappointment of a revolution which promised freedom but which brought the  Shari’a and made Libya an even more isolated and backward country. Through the struggle of these passionate footballers, the fill tells the story of five years in the post-revolution period and gives an original view of Libyan women. It is the first feature film made by a Libyan woman.
