Documentary about the famous 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, who had claimed that women played an inferior game and no female player could beat him at the age of 55. King initially turned down the challenge and watched current women's number one Margaret Court lose to the boastful Riggs, but then she stepped onto court, determined to prove a point and beat him in straight sets. The highly publicised victory paved the way for equal pay among the top players regardless of their gender.
