Jess Bhamra, the daughter of a strict Indian couple in London, is not permitted to play organized soccer, even though she is 18. When Jess is playing for fun one day, her impressive skills are seen by Jules Paxton, who then convinces Jess to play for her semi-pro team. Jess uses elaborate excuses to hide her matches from her family while also dealing with her romantic feelings for her coach, Joe.

“Terrifically fun entertainment; wonderfully shot and acted, instilled with spirit and life and able to woo us with its exuberant freshness.” ~ Paula Nechak, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
