Lady Razorbacks

4 minutes

How a group of women from the Pacific Islands find redemption on the rugby field

East Palo Alto in northern California is the city with the highest concentration of Pacific Islanders outside of Hawaii. Amidst the enormous wealth of Silicon Valley, the city also has a reputation as a pocket of crime and poverty. Lady Razorbacks follows a diverse group of Fijian, Tongan and Samoan women in East Palo Alto – each of them fighting their own personal battles at home – who’ve banded together and found powerful connections and redemption on the rugby field.

Truth is also a place

Throughout history, people found truth at holy places. Now we build courts, labs and altars to be truth spots too
