Tehran, April 2006: The first official friendly match takes place between the Iranian women’s football team and a local Berlin girls’ team, in front of more than 1000 cheering female fans. It has taken a year’s hard work on the parts of both teams of young women to make this happen. But now, after overcoming numerous obstacles, the atmosphere in the stadium is electric as the game begins. These 90 minutes are about more than just a football game. Both the desire for self-determination and equality are being expressed here and it is clear: change is possible.
