What is Nina is an Athlete about?

“On the cusp of turning 40, wheelchair badminton champion Nina Gorodetsky faces her first and possibly last chance to make it to the Paralympics,” the synopsis reads. “However, while she aspires to represent Israel in the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics, she also wants to have a second child, putting her in the crosshairs of a ticking biological clock both as a mother AND as an athlete. Then, as if that wasn’t daunting enough, everything – the planning, the training, living a normal life itself – comes to a screeching halt due to a worldwide pandemic. Nina is an Athlete tracks Nina’s unpredictable three-year journey to defy the odds and realize her Paralympic dream at the same time that she attempts to fulfill her maternal desires.”
