The Fits is a psychological portrait of 11 year old Toni a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati’s west end.
Enamoured by the power and confidence of this strong community of girl, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni’s desire for acceptance is twisted.
