When Marlene, member of an amateur women’s soccer team in Berlin, discovers that her Iranian counterparts have never had the chance to play against another team, she decides to set the record straight by organizing a game in Teheran. Unfortunately, things are not as straightforward as she thought and Marlene will have to jump through hoops and find her way through endless miles of red tape to make her dream come true.
