Synopsis

In this engrossing documentary a group of young Maasai warriors (a semi-nomadic group of people primarily based in southern Kenya) have formed a cricket team. Dressed in distinctive red robes, the team dream of participating in a cricket tournament in London, but they also play to vent frustration. In their male-dominated culture women have few rights, with young girls subjected to Female Genital Mutilation and forced marriage. As the cricket team bond, they attempt to educate other young people in their culture. Despite initial resistance from influential older members of their community who are reluctant to give up ancient traditions, the team’s experiences on the cricket field give them the confidence to stand up to their elders. An accessible film that tackles its subject matter with sensitivity and respect.
