August, 1971. FIFA may have refused to recognise the event as the first Women’s World Cup, but that didn’t deter the teams who came together from England, Argentina, France, Denmark and Italy to play against each other in Mexico. For the teams, it was a huge event: sponsorship was lavish, there was merchandise on every street corner, 110,000 roaring fans filled the historic Azteca stadium with noise and the players were treated like rock stars. In this captivating documentary, those pioneering women tell joyous stories of an international landmark event, while current players ask why they have never even heard of it. As a women’s event outside FIFA’s control, it was simply written out of football history – until now.
