This well presented documentary, directed by Sara Newens and Mina T. Son, focuses mainly on 3 American teen table tennis phenoms, namely Ariel Hsing, Lily Zhang, and Michael Landers. The film follows them as they arduously and relentlessly train, with the hopes of making the U.S. Olympic Team, heading to London in 2012.
We'll follow the 3 teens as they continually practice through training or tournaments, to try and achieve the agility, dexterity, and athleticism required to be a world class table tennis player. At the same time, they are trying to juggle their schoolwork and upcoming college entrance applications, while also trying to have some kind of a social life amidst it all. They'll be interviews with them, as well as their parents, coaches, and friends along the way.
All in all, this well paced documentary kept my interest throughout, and I found it all quite interesting and informative as well.
