The parallel lives of Kobe Bryant and Tamika Catchings
In the Roman ruins of Italy in 1986, a little girl and a little boy play together far away from their native land. The little girl ended up becoming Tamika Catchings, one of the most successful basketball players in WNBA history, and the little boy grew up to become the legendary Kobe Bryant.
After dominating the sport they have both loved and conquered for the past three decades, two old friends reunite to discuss their shared past as the children of basketball stars and how school yard games seeded their now famous competitive drives. They will reminisce about moments of triumph as they pursued their parallel paths to the pinnacle of achievement. Tamika and Kobe will commiserate over the final chapters of their legendary careers and what they look forward to as they enter a new quarter of their lives.
