Short documentary about 16 year old Jamila, a great female soccer talent wearing an islamic scarf.
Her father is her biggest fan, but now starts to be her biggest critic: why does she insist on playing with bare knees? The film examines where Jamila’s different sides – as a soccer player and as an islamic girl – are in agreement and where they clash.
