In 1971, the world’s best women’s football teams met in Mexico and played a tournament full of beautiful goals, dramas and plot twists. After that, they returned home only to face not admiration but mockery.

This timely doc tells a fascinating, shocking story about a forgotten moment in football history

— Rosie Hewitson, TimeOut


Why did FIFA try to bury a tournament that it was supposed to glorify? Why did the participants of the 1971 Cup themselves hardly ever spoke about it? Rachel Ramsay and James Erskine’s film answers these questions and diagnoses the entire society of the 20th century.
