‘An inspiration to those struggling to overcome cultural and social barriers … the film conveys a powerful message of determination, resilience and personal fulfilment.’ — Giffoni Film Festival Elements +10 jury

If watching the Matildas has given you an appetite for even more soccer action, then you won’t want to miss this exciting sport drama about a teenage girl pursuing her dreams.

Rosi loves soccer and she loves her life in Suriname in South America. She lives in a beautiful house, she has lots of friends, she is close to her grandparents, and most importantly, she gets to play soccer. But when she has to move to the Netherlands, everything changes. Fortunately, Rose does not take too long to make a new best friend and she is soon invited to try out for her new school’s girls’ soccer team. However, not everyone welcomes her with open arms, as her talent on the field is not warmly embraced by all of her new teammates. Can Rosi realise her dream of getting into the Dutch national team without creating jealousy, conflict and putting her new friendships at risk?
