Follow the true life story of Sue Sally Hale who is credited with breaking American polo's sex barrier.  Sue Sally went where no woman had gone before, Sunday polo with the men. Disguising herself as a man, she persevered when she was neither wanted nor accepted, her chosen sport certainly not prepared for her. Overcoming all odds and with a passion for polo that guided and sustained her throughout her life, she lived incredible highs and debilitating lows. Through wealth, poverty, joy, heartbreak, discipline, sacrifice and hard work, Sue Sally Hale became "Polo's Grand Dame". This is an inspirational story about living an unthinkable dream.
