This feel good comedy set in west London follows the dreams of Jessminder and Jules whose shared passion for football brings them together in a local girls' team. The only problem is that Jess' traditional-minded Indian parents would never approve of such activity - so she spins a series of elaborate yarns in order to not get found out and continue to play. But when her sister Pinky's wedding falls on the same day as a vital match, she's left facing a dilemma over which part of her life should come first. With humour and warmth, the film depicts the unique experiences faced by young British South Asians, and celebrates the joy of sport and the struggles faced by young women in the field.
