Two world-class tennis players meet on the eve of their historic semi-final match at the French Open. Soon their causal camaraderie morphs into an elusive game of cat-and-mouse.

Kim's church doesn't allow women to be elders. For nine years she's tried to get a woman elected and for nine years she's failed.
