Filmed in the heart of Limpopo, South Africa the “Vhakegula Vhakegula”—or the village grannies—lace up their soccer shoes and kick their way through centuries of taboos. These women are serious about the game of soccer as well as the bond of community through laughter and song. They are waging a singular fight for a decent life, true health, and the opportunity to live joy amidst a brutal world.
