These women want to play professional football. Make that full contact, NFL-style, smash-mouth football. True-Hearted Vixens follows the fortunes of two women and the teams they play for during a six-game exhibition tour of a start-up Women's Professional Football League. With their dreams tied to the league's success, the women grapple with powerful social stereotypes, the league's business practices and their own changing expectations of success.
