In a country where rugby sport is the national past time, the PNG Orchids must navigate through intense sexism, lack of funding and national prejudice.

Human rights organisations have described the nation as one of the worst places in the world to be a woman. 

However, the pioneers of the women's game saw an opportunity to improve rugby league for not only themselves but young girls across the country.

They had just three months to prepare for one of the biggest events in the rugby league calendar, the World Cup. 

Fans of the game will recognise Brisbane Broncos centre, Amelia Kuk. Born and raised in PNG, Kuk relocated with her family to Australia.

"Just playing together for a few months, if we can put up a good fight against a team that's played for years, it says in itself how far we can go," Kuk said.

The film, which was released in October last year, is set to reach Australian shores on March 6.
