Film Synopsis
Since childhood, as a wide-eyed 7-year-old ski jumper with a dream of Olympic flight, Lindsey Van, of Park City, Utah, has been an outsider in a man’s world. Thrust into a fight that’s far bigger than her dreams, larger than ski jumping or even sport, Lindsey and her ad hoc women’s ski jumping family battle entrenched attitudes and seemingly omnipotent gatekeepers to prove that women deserve to compete at the highest level: in the Winter Olympics. This powerful true story tells a tale of sacrifice and determination, of pluck and tragedy, as a very special group of unlikely heroes triumphs over massive obstacles to achieve a dream and change the world for other women in the process. It’s a stand-up and cheer movie.
