Kaikasha Mirza, a young Indian woman, is allowed to remove her burka for the first time in order to pursue her dreams of playing on the Mumbai Senior Women's Cricket Team. In the days leading up to the tryouts, Kaikasha's parents give her the ultimatum that she will have two years to become a professional cricketer or they will arrange her marriage. Once married, her husband would likely not allow her to play, thus pinning all of Kaikash's hopes on the upcoming tryouts for the Mumbai team. Kaikasha's eldest sister, Saba, also has her own dreams of her career and yearns to become a model, but she endures harsh criticism for wearing a niqab to interviews. Heena, the youngest sister, desires to become a fashion designer or a singer, but poverty may impede her pursuits. All three girls must contend with the wishes of their father who does not believe women should work, in addition to the whispered judgment of those within their community.
