Mary Lou loves basketball despite her mother’s claims that she’ll ‘grow muscles’ and ‘a pee pee, like a boy’ if she practices sports. In order to play, she has to convince her hyper-religious parents to sign a school permission form. Speaking to Jesus, via unorthodox means, Mary Lou tries to find a way to help her parents see the light.
