Set to the tune of S&M by Rihanna, tensions between the characters rise both on and off the courts as superstar athlete Tashi (played by Zendaya) trains her husband, Art (played by Faist), to excellence in the sport in his own right.

Things take a dramatic turn when Patrick (played by O'Connor) - Tashi's ex - enters a challengers tournament in which Art is competing, kicking off a steamy love triangle.

The rom-com is directed by the prolific Luca Guadagnino, known for his work in Call Me by Your Name and Bones and All.
