The Wolves

By Sarah DeLappe • Directed by Morgan Green

Left quad. Right quad. Lunge. In perfect sync, a girls indoor soccer team warms up. Over the course of five games, they debate: tampons or pads? Is Coach hungover or just plain lazy? And what in the world can we do about the Khmer Rouge? A portrait of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for nine American girls who just want to score some goals.
