The event creator says
A comedy about bending the rules to reach your goal, Bend It Like Beckham explores the world of women's football, from kick-abouts in the park to freekicks in the Final.
Jesminder (Jessie) is an Indian girl growing up in the UK. She is months away from entering the university, but all that is on her mind is soccer. One day, a girl named Jules, who plays for an organized girls' team, sees Jessie playing in the park and is impressed by her skill. She invites Jessie to join her team.
Secretly, Jessie joins the team, knowing that her traditional parents do not approve of her love of the game. They want her to act more lady-like, wear make-up and dress like a woman, to get ready for a husband, and to learn how to cook traditional Indian dinners. With the family caught up in preparations for Jessie's sister's upcoming wedding, however, she thinks her secret is safe.
