Girl Unbound

Legends are often made by people fighting for their country: Joan of Arc of France, Mulan of Ancient China, Epipole of Carystus during the Trojan War, and often by women who have had to pass as men in order to fight the battle.

This is the story of a young woman, known as Genghis Khan, who is doing that today... 

In the Taliban controlled area of Waziristan, where sports for women are decried as un-Islamic, and girls rarely leave their houses, young Maria Toorpakai defies the rules by disguising herself as a boy, so she can play sports freely. As she becomes a rising star, however, her true identity is revealed, bringing constant death threats on her and her family. 

Undeterred, they continue to rebel for their freedom.
