About the Movie
Courtney Thompson is a ray of sunshine in an otherwise dark, cold Polish winter. Thompson is the only American on a professional women's volleyball team in Lodz, Poland. An acclaimed, if unlikely, collegiate star at the University of Washington, Thompson is on a journey to become just one of 12 women selected for the US Olympic volleyball team. Growing up, volleyball isn't on Thompson's radar. Yet, something about the game--the difficulty, the teamwork, the passion--draws her in. With an intensity shared by few others, Thompson confronts countless challenges. Unlike many world-class athletes, she remains beloved by her teammates. Against all odds, Thompson is among the finalists for the Olympic roster. It's hard not to root for her. It's even harder not to feel inspired by her extraordinary journey.
