Football and feminism collide in this feature documentary that follows two former NFL cheerleaders who file class-action lawsuits against their teams and the league alleging wage theft and illegal employment practices. After more than 50 years of pervasive silence, these young women expose the gender inequality at the heart of America’s favorite pastime, while facing exile from their communities and the job they love. Their fight is a microcosm of the battle women wage across all industries today.
