The movie recounts the dramatic tale of the first unified Korean team that competed at the 1991 World Table Tennis Championships in China, Japan. South Korea’s table tennis star Hyun Jung Hwa and North Korea’s Li Bun Hee have each suffered humbling defeats at the hands of China’s formidable “Ping-Pong Witch” every time they reach the tournament’s final rounds. Forced by politicians to suddenly team up as the first united team Korea, Hyun and Li experience only conflict and mistrust and face the loss of their championship dreams. But game-by-game, the two begin to build teamwork and find a budding friendship. When political winds change again and just as suddenly an announcement is made to disband team Korea, the two young women must prove to their people and the world that teamwork can outshine the dark shadows of a painful history.
