HBO Max debuted the official trailer for the women's soccer movie LFG ahead of the documentary's premiere on Thursday, June 24.

Directed by Oscar winners Andrea Nix Fine and Sean Fine, LFG is an inside account of the U.S. women's soccer team's ongoing fight for equal pay as told by Megan Rapinoe, Jessica McDonald, Becky Sauerbrunn, Kelley O'Hara, Sam Mewis and others.

In 2019, the players filed a class-action, gender discrimination lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation three months before the FIFA Women's World Cup, which sets the stage for LFG.

The trailer can be seen at www.youtube.com/watch .
