Synopsis

Follows the journey of professional tennis player Sonya Jeyaseelan, ranked #47 in the world. She struggles daily to overcome injuries, end an interminable losing streak and confront a past that has robbed her of a normal childhood, a decent education and a nurturing family life. As many of her fellow players and old tennis academy friends including Anna Kournikova, Jennifer Capriati and Amelie Mauresmo move up the rankings, Jeyaseelan must wage a battle with herself that might be more formidable than any opponent she's ever faced.
