This timely doc shines a light on the underpaid athletes of the NFL: cheerleaders. Often expected to work for no pay in a billion-dollar industry, many are fighting back in courtrooms, demanding a fair (and sometimes simply a minimum) wage. This inspiring and defiant courtroom sports doc brings cheerleaders into the national conversation of wage and gender equality, and how athletes' work is valued—on the field and on the sidelines.
