Angeni, a young female track star, who dreams of becoming the fastest woman in the world, is forced to undergo a sex verification test due to her ultra-masculine appearance and exceptional performances. Tormented by the medical scrutiny, in which she is made to believe her body is abnormal, Angeni’s sense of self is undermined, and her athletic dream is shattered by the need for classification.
