Iranian writer-director Soheil Beiraghi’s politically charged drama centres on a professional female soccer player. Afrooz is the captain and star player and due to lead her team to compete in the Asian Cup, but by law, a women requires permission from her husband to travel abroad, and her marriage is not in a good place. Beiraghi and her cast crank up the tension as she desperately attempts to make it on time.
A simple premise disguises a film of great skill, its power generated by the low key approach and a fantastic lead performance.Gráinne Humphreys, Festival Director
