From the football pitch to the changing room with the world’s best female footballers in a riveting film about team spirit, respect, and recognition. Olympique Lyonnais is one of the world’s best women’s football teams. And when you see The Squad,you understand that this is because they are skilled individual players, but invincible when they play together. You don’t have to be a football fan to be carried away by their team spirit, where everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. Still, the team captain Wendie Renard and her teammates are up against more than just their opponents on the pitch. Equality is not just about equal pay but about recognition and respect, and this is a battle that they must win every single day. An energetic and inspiring film about setting high goals—and scoring them.
