През 1981 година Моника се настанява в Лос Анджелис, семейството й е врата до врата с това на Куинси. И двамата са на 11 години, и двамата мечтаят да играят в NBA, също като бащата на Куинси. Тяхната връзка на любов-омраза продължава и в колежа, където те почти не си говорят, но всеки път, когато Куинси се скара със семейството си, скришом се промъква през прозореца в стаята на Моника, за да спи на пода. Когато завършват колежа, двамата стават гаджета. Година по-късно вече са играчи в USC. Отношенията на Куинси с баща му претърпяват крах и това се отразява на връзката му с Моника. Двамата се разделят. Няколко години по-късно пътищата им се пресичат отново. Време е за една последна баскетболна среща, както и за изясняване на взаимоотношенията си.

Český
Je rok 1981 a jedenáctiletá Monica se nastěhuje do sousedství domu, kde bydlí stejně starý Quincy. Oba milují basketbal a sní o tom, že budou hrát v NBA stejně jako Quincyho otec. Navštěvují stejnou střední školu, kde oba patří ke hvězdám svých týmů. V té době se jejich zvláštní přátelství mění v lásku a společně jdou studovat na univerzitu USC. Tam se jejich sportovní kariéry začnou rozbíhat jinými směry. Quincy odchází hrát již po prvním ročníku do NBA a Monica po ukončení univerzity do Španělska. Znovu se tak setkávají až po pěti letech. Quincy se snaží o návrat po těžkém zranění a Monica prochází krizí – hraní ji už nepřináší tolik potěšení jako dříve…

Dansk
Quincy og Monica er vokset op sammen. De er blevet forelskede, men de deler også en altoverskyggende kærlighed for basketball. Mens de kæmper for deres forhold, må de følge forskellige veje, på jagt efter drømmen om storhed på banen.

Deutsch
Monicas große Leidenschaft ist Basketball. Schon als Elfjährige konkurriert sie mit den Jungs aus der Nachbarschaft, allen voran ihrem Freund Quincy, der genau wie sein Vater mal Profispieler bei der NBA werden will. Auch Monicas Ziel ist die Profi-Liga und dafür trainiert sie ziemlich hart. Trotz ständiger Rivalitäten kommt es aber wie es kommen muss: Monica und Quincy verlieben sich ineinander, doch erst, als beide aufs College gehen, kämpfen sie auch nicht mehr gegen ihre Gefühle an. Monica und Quincy sind das erklärte Dreamteam auf dem Campus. Doch dann trennen sich ihre Wege. Als Monica ein paar Jahre später Quincy wieder trifft, lodern die tiefen Gefühle auf. Sie fordert ihn zu einem letzten gemeinsamen Spiel heraus, bei dem es um alles oder nichts geht: um Liebe oder Karriere.

Español
Quincy y Mónica son dos vecinos que crecen compartiendo su amor por el baloncesto. Están hechos el uno para el otro, pero ellos aún no lo saben. Los celos, el orgullo y la vida los llevan a encuentros y desencuentros, vividos con la intensidad de un playoff. Ni la estancia en Barcelona de Mónica ni una espectacular top-model en el corazón de Quincy podrán separarlos.

A tizenegy éves Monica Los Angelesbe költözik a szüleivel. A kislány tehetséges kosaras, minden vágya, hogy egyszer az NBA-ben játszhasson. Kiderül, hogy a szomszédjukban egy profi kosaras lakik, akinek a Monicával egykorú fia, Quincy az apja nyomdokaiba szeretne lépni. A két gyerek nem szívleli egymást, vetélytársat látnak a másikban. Ez az ellenségeskedés a középiskolán át a főiskoláig eltart, amikor kapcsolatuk száznyolcvan fokos fordulatot vesz. Quincy apja azonban rossz szemmel nézi ezt, ezért a fiú végül szakít Monicával. Néhány év múlva a fiatalok ismét találkoznak, és újra föllángol köztük a szenvedély.

Polski
W 1981 roku jedenastoletnia Monica wprowadza się do Los Angeles. Spotyka tam i po krótkim czasie zaprzyjaźnia się z Quincy. Razem bawią się na ulicy, grając w koszykówkę. Z czasem gra przeradza się w rywalizację, a po kilku latach w miłość.

Português
Esta é uma história de amor e competitividade que começou quando Monica e Quincy se conheceram, ainda crianças. Quincy não acreditou quando viu que Monica jogava melhor que muitos garotos. Já no colegial, Quincy segue os passos do pai, jogador da NBA: torna-se um símbolo na escola e conquista todas as garotas. Monica passa desapercebida. Sua mãe e seu técnico acham que ela deve se portar de forma mais feminina. E quando ela aparece toda arrumada na festa da escola, Quincy descobre-se apaixonado por sua vizinha. Na universidade, mesmo buscando suas carreiras individualmente, eles continuam namorando. Até que Monica deixa de lhe dar apoio num momento importante. Quincy decide deixar os estudos para ser jogador profissional e termina o namoro. Mas, no amor e no basquete, o jogo só termina quando o segundo tempo acaba.

Моника и Квинси знают друг друга с детства. Еще когда им было по 11, Квинси был потрясен тем, что какая-то девчонка может играть в баскетбол лучше, чем большинство парней. Но время шло, они становились старше. И на смену дружбе пришло другое чувство — любовь. К сожалению, это не продлилось долго — Квинси, мечтая быть как отец известным игроком в НБА, бросает Монику и уходит в профессиональные баскетболисты. Сблизивший их баскетбол их же жестоко и разлучил. Но жизнь не так плоха, и она дарит им случайную встречу, которая может сделать их снова близкими и счастливыми или… чужими и очень далекими.

Women and men attend film schools in equal numbers, but women direct only 4% of top grossing feature films in the US. Why are women largely shut out of this prestigious, lucrative and culturally influential profession? High profile women directors including Ava DuVernay (A Wrinkle In Time), Lena Dunham (“Girls), Jill Soloway (“Transparent”), among others, offer candid, unfiltered and often humorous tales of their careers in Hollywood, while experts on gender inequality destroy the myths that have allowed discrimination in Hollywood to thrive. The entertainment industry has denied women’s voices for decades, but with a new Federal investigation into discriminatory hiring in Hollywood and a powerful movement toward equal representation gaining momentum, could this be the dawn of a new era?
