An intimate portrait of Maria Toorpakai, who defies Islamic fundamentalists in order to represent Pakistan as an internationally competitive squash player
In the Taliban controlled area of Waziristan, where sports for women are decried as un-Islamic, and girls rarely leave their houses, young Maria Toorpakai defies the rules by disguising herself as a boy, so she can play sports freely. As she becomes a rising star, however, her true identity is revealed, bringing constant death threats on her and her family.
