For a soccer-mad young girl, a crucial world cup qualifying match for Iran's
national football team at the Azadi stadium in Tehran is the game of her dreams.
But with women banned from the country's football grounds, she and several other
equally dedicated and rebellious girls have only one way of infiltrating the
crowd....by disguising themselves as boys.
But with sharp-eyed soldiers policing the event and obstacles such as the lack of women's bathrooms to overcome, the street-smart girls find they have to use their wits and every trick in the book to see the match.
A hilarious and engaging comedy, Offside entertainingly llustrates the fight for women's rights in Iran.
