An intimate film about hope, struggle and sacrifice in a land where dreaming is a luxury. Over the span of five years, FREEDOM FIELDS follows three women and their football team in post-revolution Libya, as the country descends into civil war and the utopian hopes of the Arab Spring begin to fade. Through the eyes of these accidental activists, we will experience the reality of a country in transition, where personal stories of love and ambition intersect with history, in a love letter to sisterhood and team power.
