Madison, 12, is always with the boys. She wears boys' clothes and plays on the boys' basketball team. However, now that she is older, her coach thinks it is important that she also practices with the girls. Madison finds it difficult to get used to playing with the girls, but slowly she opens up to new possibilities and experiences that she can be comfortable in several places without changing who she is. She decides to apply for an elite sports school. But is she talented enough to get admitted, and will she be able to say goodbye to her classmates with whom she has always felt she could be exactly who she is?
