Winner of 3 Tribeca Film Festival awards, including Best U.S Narrative Feature. An obsessive college freshman joins her university’s rowing team and undertakes an extreme physical and psychological journey to make it to the top varsity boat, no matter the cost. Isabelle Furhman’s (Orphan)  fierce lead performance collides with Lauren Hadaway’s bold direction and dynamic editing, creating a visceral window into a cutthroat world. This unapologetic debut from Hadaway, based on her personal experience as a competitive collegiate rower, heralds a bold new voice in queer storytelling. If you liked Whiplash, this one’s for you.

“A film this raw made with such a steady, assured hand only comes along once in a while. We should take notice.”—The Hollywood Reporter
