When former professional cricketer Akhtar Zeb invites the students of Mashal Model School to form a cricket team, each of them gets a taste of the freedom and confidence that come from participating in sports. However, they have to weight the joy of playing with the expectations and deeply held cultural values of their families. Whether in the face of community condemnation or pressure from home, the girls struggle and sacrifice for their right to play.
