About the Film:

Part of Women in Film

Directed by Anna Rose Holmer. USA. 2015. 82 min.

This New York Times Critics’ Pick is an artful psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni, a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s West End. The title role is played by Royalty Hightower, the buzzed-about breakout star whom director Anna Rose Holmer discovered through YouTube videos of Hightower’s real-life dance team Q-Kidz. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance is twisted.
