American biographical sports film based on the 1973 tennis match between world women's champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champion, Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell). Billie submits to jeering from the chauvinistic Bobby to step up and play against him in a match where the winner will collect $100,000 and prove which gender is the stronger. Billie sets out to prove that women can perform as well as her male counterpart, and questions the gender pay gap in the sports industry. On match day, who will win the game and come out on top?
