A young sportswoman who dreams of winning an Olympic Gold, decides to get pregnant in order to help her chances, as the early stages of pregnancy, known as ‘legal dope’, are thought to produce a hormone which encourages growth. Unfortunately, however, in her case, the hormones have an adverse effect and instead of transforming her into a sporting legend, they turn her into a woman who wants to fall in love and settle down.

While sport provides the backdrop to our story giving a keen sense of the strong desire to win and fulfil one’s ambition, our heroine is faced with a difficult choice. With her goal in sight, will she follow her sporting dreams or will she follow her heart? This is the story of a young woman’s life-changing decision and her quest for ultimate happiness.
