Synopsis:
Jamal Jeffries (Miguel A. Nunez Jr.), the reigning ‘bad boy’ of basketball, gets kicked out of the league without any prospects due to his undisciplined on-court antics. Financially strapped, Jamal comes up with a plan so outrageous it just might work: dress up like a woman and try out for the women’s basketball league.

To Jamal’s surprise, he makes it, but now the real challenge begins, to cease being Jamal and start a new life as, Juwanna Mann. Matters become even more complicated when Juwanna realizes that he is falling for his teammate Michelle (Vivica A. Fox), who shows him that there is more to women than meets the eye.
