Blending drama, mystery and magical realism and as gripping as it is unique, first-time writer-directorAnna Rose Holmer's multi-award winning film is the story of eleven-year-old tomboy Toni. She is bewitched by the tight-knit dance team she sees practicing in the same Cincinnati gymnasium where she boxes. Enamoured by the power and confidence of the strong community of girls, Toni spends less and less time boxing with her older brother, and even pierces her ears in an effort to fit in. But then something happens to complicate Toni’s desire for acceptance. With an electrifying performance from young Royalty Hightower as Toni, THE FITS looks at adolescence, gender and self-discovery in a fresh, totally unexpected and spellbinding way.
