Marinette Pichon is the pioneer of French women’s soccer and the first French player, male or female, to have a career in the US. The film follows her fight to spread awareness of women’s rights in sports. A path full of pitfalls, from a childhood ravaged by an alcoholic and violent father to the heavy burden of coming out in an era without LGBTQ+ rights.

Marinette is a story of a woman’s life, a fighter, an uncompromising ode to freedom, to surpass oneself.
