Let girls play

documentary film, 85 min, In Development

In a very conservative and Muslim corner of Russia, the Republic of Dagestan, every girl's future is determined at birth. School, forced marriage, children: this is the way of living according to their patriarchal society. Any infringement on traditional and political doctrine is dangerous and of great risk for every woman. Against this backdrop, a few girls band together to form the first women's soccer team. As the sportswomen reclaim the right to their own path, each will face judgment and humiliation for their choice, sometimes to the point of severing relationships with the people closest to them.
