Episode description: Texas teenager Tara Neal insists that girls and boys should be able to wrestle on the same mat. Filmmaker Diane Zander follows her through the last year in which state guidelines allowed her to wrestle boys—a year filled with family conflict; pressure to lose weight; and fierce policy debates over interpretations of Title IX, the federal law that grants women's sports proportionality in public schools.
