Movie Info

Mexican TV-soap actress Olympia Miraflores (Carmen Nogales) announces her ambition to compete in the Olympic javelin throw, but her manager Ed Pedernales (Damian Young) and her fans aren't exactly keen on the idea. Swimming across the Rio Grande, Olympia meets Billy Daniel (Jason Andrews), who has no job and lives in Laredo with his mother (Patricia Fiske). Billy begins coaching Olympia, but his angry mom becomes furious over the idea. After she throws him out of the house, leaving him with only a cookie jar of pocket change, Billy escalates his rulebook regimen for the actress-athlete into an intensive training schedule. Shown at the 1998 Slamdance Film Festival.
