In the Game is a documentary feature film directed by Peabody award-winner Maria Finitzo and produced by Kartemquin Films (Hoop Dreams).

In the Game follows the ups and downs of a girls’ soccer team to reveal the very real obstacles that low-income students confront in their quest for higher education.

Set at an inner city high school in a primarily Hispanic neighborhood, the girls face an uneven playing field – or in the case of the girls at Kelly High School, no soccer field at all – little or no support, problems at home, uncertain futures, discrimination, and poverty.

Thanks to their teammates and the dedicated mentoring of their coach, however, the girls never give up hope in their quest for attending college and, most importantly, success in life.
