The feature-length documentary film THE LEAP is a story about the amazing life “comeback” of basketball player Nataša Kovačević, but also her mission to awaken the fighting spirit and motivation of other people with similar destinies to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The film is also a homage to all those who helped her stay upright at the age of 19 after losing her leg in a car accident in Hungary on September 7, 2013, but also to make a feat that has not been recorded in the history of sports. Her return to the basketball court was more than all the great sports “comebacks” that entered the annals and became the inspiration of fans around the planet.
