Tips for enjoying movies outside at PROXY.

Toni is a young tomboy in a black Cincinnati neighborhood who trains as a boxer with her brother at a local community center. She becomes fascinated with an elite after-school dance team that also practices there. Enamored with their strength and confidence, Toni joins the dance group — eagerly learning routines, mastering drills, and even piercing her ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting and swooning spells, they call “the fits”, are embraced by the team as a peculiar rite of passage, Toni must decide how far she will go to fit in.
