In a world besieged by extremism, simply "carrying on" can be defiantly courageous. This moving, timely portrait presents Maria Toorpakai Wazir, an androgynous Muslim Pakistani squash champion. She and her loving family struggle just to live and thrive amid challenges from the sporting world in which Maria dares compete, and persistent threats that they all endure from the Taliban terrorist organization. This unflinchingly brave film boldly challenges audiences with its humanity and daring.
