Aspiring basketball players Monica Wright (Sanaa Lathan) and Quincy McCall (Omar Epps) meet as two kids with a passion for the game and grow up into two people, passionate about each other. And even though love isn’t a game, they learn that love takes all the same things basketball does: Time, energy, practice, and dedication. For Monica and Quincy, balancing relationships and sports’ careers will come down to one final match, one on one— Winner takes all.
