Tashi Duncan is a former tennis prodigy turned coach and a force of nature who makes no apologies for her game on and off the court. Married to a champion on a losing streak, Tashi’s strategy for her husband’s redemption takes a surprising turn when he must face off against his former best friend and Tashi’s former boyfriend. As their pasts and presents collide, and tensions run high, Tashi must ask herself, what will it cost to win. Not as much a tennis movie as a character study.

Fifty years ago, on August 7, 1974, Philippe Petit strung a thin tightrope between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center and walked across it. Plotting his feat like a master cat burglar, Petit enlisted the help of a motley group of friends as he calculated every detail, from acquiring building access to stringing up the wire. Using actual footage from the event as well as new re-enactments, filmmaker James Marsh recreates Petit’s stunt in a masterful documentary.
