The first female African Lacrosse team.
SLEEPING WARRIOR is about the first female African Lacrosse team. The film follows these young women from their homes in Kenya to the World Championships in Canada and shows how an unimaginable opportunity transforms their humble lives. From getting their first passports, to discovering how their friends and families react, we learn how the power of sport changes these young women. There is heartbreak, joy and always strength of spirit.
During the course of filming, one player discovered that her deceased mother might be alive after all, so we follow her dramatic journey to find her real family. The title comes from a mountain the girls train under in Kenya called ‘Sleeping Warrior’ and these young women are so strong, yet have been oppressed their whole lives, they are truly warriors.
