Freestyle Synopsis

Ondene Marchant is beautiful, talented, and destined to major in law at Oxford. After years of studying, Ondene is desperate to live a little. She discovers freestyle basketball, and takes up the offer of lessons from a charismatic and gifted student, Leon. Although Leon's fighting against the odds to educate himself, Ondine's mother is convinced he is bad news because he lives in the projects - a place she escaped from long ago. As romance blossoms, the sweethearts face an uphill struggle as they try to succeed in life and love.
