By day the Shamrocks work as nannies for affluent New Yorkers. At night and on free weekends, these unlikely champions dominate the local women's soccer league. As notorious for their time spent in pubs as for their time spent on the soccer pitch, they're the scourge of the league in just about every way. The team is anchored by three friends, Bryn, Helen and Jocelyn—the matriarch, the star player and the unwed mother. Goalie, forward and halfback.
When an Irish documentary crew—a couple of boys and a High 8—arrive to shoot the team for the folks back home, unhappiness begins. The women must confront their precarious relationships with one another, with the society in which they are aliens, with sexuality and love, friendship and jealousy, and the pain that comes from not always winning.
It's not your usual Irish-nanny soccer film.
