The 4KGIRL$ have a single goal: to become Canadian Junior Curling Champions. They know how it is to feel like underdogs but think this could be their year. With phones in one hand and brooms firmly in the other, teammates Hannah, Brooklyn, Savannah, Ashley and Amy are regular teenage besties living in suburban British Columbia who push their limits on and off the ice. Throwing rocks while updating their socials, they’re living under pressure that tests their self-confidence. Amid their rigorous training and competition schedule, with three of their moms (who are former Olympic curlers) as their coaches, they still face the familiar adolescent rites of passage like working part-time jobs, applying to college, and dating. Director Josephine Anderson crafts a thoughtful and captivating observational portrait about coming of age, friendship and overcoming adversity both in life and in a game of inches where every shot counts and sometimes things don’t go as planned.
