This film is a follow up to Zanzibar Soccer Queens – ZSQ (2007) – , a film about the personal stories and football activities of Women Fighters, a predominantly Muslim women’s team in Zanzibar. ZSQ is a documentary portrait of strong-willed women determined to better their lives and define new identities through soccer.

Times are changing in the playing fields of soccer in Zanzibar as young Muslim girls are starting to have equal opportunities, and access to soccer training as part of physical education in schools. Thus, changing the status of women’s soccer – from playing in the streets to becoming part of Sports Education in government schools. Going for Goals: Zanzibar Soccer Dreams tells the story of a new era and changing times in this exotic Island on the Indian Ocean.
