Girls in a slum in Buenos Aires dare to play a game that is off-limits to women in Argentina: Soccer and learn to challenge stereotypes on and off the field. We started following these girls in 2008 and made this short film that played in many festivals and than won a grant from the INCAA (Argentine Film Board) to make a feature documentary on the same subject. More than a movie, this project has grown to include a video workshop for the girls so they can participate in the film.
