At the end of the world, a tennis coach and his protégé are determined to put on an Open tournament. They meet a guerrilla fighter and invite him to lay down his gun and take up a racket.

Leeds International Film Festival
LIFF is a portal for audiences to discover the real world of film that exists beyond regular film exhibition. LIFF primarily supports outstanding new talent and established talent that has not received deserved exposure in the UK. LIFF considers narrative, documentary and animated films, in feature-length and short formats, and in multiple genres and from all countries.
Founded in 1987 Leeds International Film Festival is renowned as a dynamic event with a reputation for challenging and innovative programming. Last year LIFF presented a huge variety of exceptional films at over 300 screenings and events at 30 venues over 15 days.
Vue is open all day, so why not come along early to grab a drink and a snack? Doors to the screening room usually open around ten minutes before the performance starts.
