In a country torn apart by political upheaval, a team of young women finds refuge in a sport that rises above poverty and gender discrimination. But when this soccer team goes undefeated in South America, they get a chance to win Venezuela’s first World Cup and gain acceptance in their home country.
A classic underdog story, this documentary is an intimate portrait of Venezuela’s national women’s soccer team. Set against the backdrop of a political crisis and the global fight for equality in sports, They Call Us Warriors is an inspiring tale about the power of athletes to achieve social change.
