From self-centered fashion diva to heroic futsal captain – Gol & Gincu follows the journey of Putri as she discovers what really matters in life.
Dumped unceremoniously by her sports-crazy boyfriend, Putri schemes of winning him back by becoming a futsal player herself. Initially she is deemed clueless and rather bimbo-esque and has to take a few hard knocks along the way. Working with her futsal team, she learns the difficulties and prejudices faced by women athletes. Ultimately she comes out victorious, as she becomes a stronger person and discovers the winner in her, both on and off the pitch.
“The story focuses on issues faced by youth growing up and dealing with self-image, love, and pressure from their peers, family and society,” says co-Executive Producer Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir. “And we also want to show the very diverse range of young people that we have. Contrary to what people believe, they do not all look and act the same way!”
Written by Rafidah Abdullah, (writer and host of 3R), Gol and Gincu is her first feature film script. The film is directed by award winning independent filmmaker Bernard Chauly, (of “Piala untuk Mama” and “Multimedia Super Cintun” fame).
