“A 12-year-old girl tries to make the Chinese youth Olympic weightlifting team and gets help from an unlikely source. The film’s chock-full of heart, courage and will, but it leaves viewers wanting one more thing: the theme from Rocky.”<br />
— Sports Illustrated (Short Circuit: Best of Tribeca)<br />
<br />
“We’ve chosen to award this beautifully edited film for its economy and precision. This filmmaker manages, in just ten minutes and with only a handful of spoken lines, to create a film that we found surprising and emotional, balancing wistfulness for one character’s past with hope for another’s future.”<br />
