Toni is 11. She is just one of the kids spending a lot of time at the town’s recreation centre. She is powerful, hardworking, ambitious, systematic; and the only girl among the boys of the boxing gym. Besides her passion for boxing, she also wants to be a part of the Lionesses, a dance group rehearsing downstairs. Toni’s change starts when she splits her time between dancing and boxing and starts to feel like being have to choose one. By coincidence, this change occurs simultaneously with the fits experienced by the Lionesses, one by one. Touched by a glimpse of fantasy and empowered with young Royalty Hightower’s performance, the growing pains turn into a psychological explosion in this thrilling film The Fits, recalling Black Swan.
