West Coast Premiere!
Nina is an Athlete (2024)

On the cusp of turning 40, Israeli wheelchair badminton champion Nina Gorodetsky, has her first and maybe last, chance to participate in the Paralympics. However, she is negotiating a ticking biological clock both as a mother and as an athlete. What would she be willing to sacrifice to realize her Olympic dream? Nina shows true determination and perserverence as she keeps her eyes on the prize. Her commitment to achieve what she wants, no matter the obstacles is compelling and uplifting. She is a bad ass!
