18-year-old Jess Bhamra (Parminder Nagra) wants nothing more than to play soccer, but her parentsĀ (Anupam Kher, Shaheen Khan), strict Punjabi Sikhs, won't allow her to join a team. When Jess is playing for fun one day in a London park, her impressive skills are seen by Jules Paxton (Keira Knightley), who convinces Jess to play for her semi-pro team.
