A formidable but anxious backspot on a mid-level cheerleading squad is given an opportunity to join a high performance All Star team, a promotion that could threaten her relationship and wellbeing.
Young, ambitious and fiercely in love with her girlfriend, Riley would be on top of the world if only she could get her crippling anxiety under control. Overwhelmed, obsessive and with a competition looming, Riley must decipher her own voice from the women around her, and form a healthier relationship to the sport that she loves.
Much like in their career as a DJ, D.W. Waterson maintains an exceptional energy with their feature debut, balancing the highs and lows of being young and dedicated.
