Six Iranian girls disguise themselves as boys in order to enter Tehran's Azadi Stadium to watch the 2006 World Cup Asian zone qualifier between Iran and Bahrain. However, their presence is discovered and they are arrested one by one.
A spirited film that explores gender politics with comedy, intelligence, and a variety of interesting characters.
Exhilarating, exuberant and drolly funny.
Humanizes the Iranians and shows that they're just as crazy about their sports as Westerners, if not more. If anything, it proves that soccer is truly an international language, providing an arena where anyone can communicate.
...reveals pockets of empathy existing in defiance of Iran's oppressive regime.
