Janny, Lisa, Debby and Michelle are four young female wrestlers. Since the age of 13 they’ve been living at the “Elite School of Sport” in Frankfurt / Oder, a boarding school in East German tradition.
We accompanied them up to tenth grade through their hard daily training, watching them grow up in a world of long corridors, weight classes, performance pressure and gyms. We were interested in where they would find space for dreams and aspirations; what the girls moves and drives to go down this difficult path.
The documentary “Win by Fall” follows the wrestlers trying to find their place, even away from competitive rankings.
