Almost everyone has played ping pong, right? Perhaps in a friend's basement, a school, a community center, or a bar. It's everywhere! But it's still not widely recognized as a "true" sport in America. Even though it requires real athletic prowess and rigorous training, it never gets the recognition (or money) that many other American sports do.
So what's a pro player like Rocky Wang to do?
After years of living in New York and scraping by as a ping pong coach, veteran player Rocky decided to leave the big city and weave his through the United States to compete again. With little money and his trusty van (Myrtle the Turtle), he's exploring what American ping pong is really like and the colorful characters that play across the country.
