Writer and director Faraut revisits the rich bounty of footage of the left-handed tennis star John McEnroe as he competes in the French Open at Paris's Roland Garros Stadium in 1984. Far from a traditional documentary, Faraut probes the archival film to unpack both McEnroe's attention to the sport and the footage itself, creating a lively and immersive look at a driven athlete, a study on the sport of tennis and the human body and movement, and finally how these all intersect with cinema itself.
