Tennis player Henry and ballerina Eva are two best friends from New Jersey who end up spending the summer at competitive camps. Henry quickly rises in the tennis ranks at her Florida camp. At first Eva excels at her prestigious ballet program in New York before her eating disorder catches up to her in devastating ways. Both girls struggle to find independence from their overbearing parents and to find joy in their respective fields. Henry and Eva both come to realize how important their friendship is to each other, possibly even more important than tennis or ballet.
