SYNOPSIS
Directors Rex Miller and Sam Pollard explore the enduring legacy of tennis great and humanitarian
Arthur Ashe in a feature documentary as elegant, meaningful, and poignant as the life he lived.

Ashe’s widow, brother, friends from his childhood in Richmond to his Grand Slam tournament playing and coaching days, as well as confidantes that nurtured his personal evolution from sports legend to global activist, describe the key events that shaped Ashe’s quiet determination to ‘use what he had to
do what he could.
