The end of a career – and yet a miracle! She bested 150 million players from Far East, she was world’s 2nd best player for 2.5 years, she held position among top 10 players for more than 10 years, she was and still is one of the best European players of all time. She won bronze medal at the World Championship in Paris and became the first European player to win a World Championship medal after ten years. Table tennis as a sport is dominated by Asian players (mostly Chinese), but at the peak of her career, she was able to beat the best of the table tennis world.

Tamara Boroš came to Zagreb in 1993, won bronze medal at the World Championship in 2003 and ended her sporting career in 2013. What did she do? How did she play? How did she struggle with her illness? What does she leave behind and what can young players learn from her experience?

The answers to these questions are hidden inside the film „Tamara“. Pain, sweat and tears but also pride, laughter and sincerity, all that in one word – Tamara!
