The film is about a culture clash
The story is about a young Punjbai girl called Jess who loves football and whose favourite player is David Beckham.

But her parents don't like her choice of idol, and she has to hide her love of football from her family.

She even gets the chance to play for a women's team after impressing at a trial, but eventually she is forced into making a choice between football and her family.

Watch this space for more female footie action on Friday!
