Storyline

Lula is a curious and strong-willed 12 year-old girl living in a small suburban neighborhood in Central Mexico. Her family owns a little restaurant and she spends most of her days working there, going to school, and when she gets any free time, playing soccer. Lula dreams of playing soccer with the boys in her neighborhood. However, in her society, women do not play sports, and gender roles are clearly defined. After the school soccer coach and team harass Lula, she is left to practice by herself in the alley behind her house. Lula's naivety about her gender role, economic standing and social norms is shattered when 14 year-old Andres, the soccer team's captain sexually assaults her. Lula struggles to overcome this shame. Written by Erika Cohn
