A one-hour documentary exploring the frustrating conundrum of women in sports. In the age of Title IX, womens sports have grown expensive, time-consuming, complicated and extraordinarily competitive, even at the most elementary levels. Injuries are more common; scandals appear more prevalent, rewards seem less certain. Millions of American moms and dads send their daughters onto playing fields each year, yet many of them wonder: are organized girls sports worth it? NCAA volleyball champion University of Washington travels to China, home of many of the best women athletes in the world, and provide the focus for a revealing look at the future of women and sport.

A smart, finely tuned film, worth viewing by anyone who gives a hoot about young women, athlete or not. —SEATTLE TIMES
