A female futsal (indoor soccer) player takes her case to court when her husband won't let her leave the country to play in the biggest match of her life. Afrooz (Baran Kosari) is the national team's star player and an inspirational captain who's dedicated 11 years of her life to the sport. It was she who scored the winning goal that allowed her team to move on to the Asian Nations Cup in Malaysia. But when she is ready to board the flight along with the rest of her team, she is astounded to discover that her estranged husband has issued a travel ban, something which Iranian men have the legal right to do. As the days count down to the next big match, Afrooz tries everything within her power to regain control of her life.
