Young soccer star Charlie has it all — friends, a loving family and a top club desperate for Charlie to join the team. But the teenager only sees a nightmare. Trapped in the body of a boy, Charlie is torn between wanting to live up to her father’s expectations and shedding this ill-fitting skin. Charlie’s next move will tear the family apart and threaten everything they hold dear.
