This gripping tale of adolescent mass hysteria is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni, a tomboy assimilating into a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati, whose members begin mysteriously fainting and fitting.

Toni trains as a boxer with her brother, but is drawn to the strength and confidence of The Lionesses who practice in the same gym. When Toni joins the group and the girls begin to experience mysterious fits, Toni's desire for acceptance becomes ever more complicated...

The Fits blends drama, mystery and magical realism, resulting in a dreamy coming-of-age film guaranteed to keep you spellbound.
