The tennis game and the tennis player’s obsessive struggle for a victory as a metaphor to our survival here and now: to attack / to defend, to embrace / to part, to lose / to win: from the personal and intimate to the social and political. Accompanied by a soundtrack that combines original sounds from the tennis court with trance and soul music.
