When a group of Pacific Islander women struggle to start a rugby team in East Palo Alto, they find the field to be an unexpected sanctuary. Fijians, Tongans, and Samoans discover common ground learning the sport they grew up watching their brothers, uncles and cousins play. In a space where hitting hard and caring for each other are synonymous, they learn new ways to express themselves, support one another, and challenge the stigma attached to their community.
