Toe to Toe

Compelling coming-of-age tale.
- Steve Ramos, indieWIRE
One of the best coming-of-age dramas to emerge from the Sundance Film Festival since 'Thirteen.'
Toe to Toe is unafraid to be challenging and deal with issues that most films skirt.
- Melissa Silverstein, THE HUFFINGTON POST
Toe to Toe springs out with an emotional verve and confidence.


Toe to Toe tells the story of the friendship and rivalry between lacrosse mates Tosha and Jesse, two senior girls at a competitive Washington, D.C. prep school. Tosha is an African American scholarship student from Anacostia, one of Washington's poorest areas, while Jesse is a troubled and promiscuous white girl from the ritzy suburbs of Maryland. The two forge a close and genuine bond on the field, but their friendship unravels as they navigate through race and class related obstacles. When Jesse and Tosha discover that they've both been dating the same boy, the conflict becomes explosive. "Toe to Toe" is a powerful reminder of the transforming power of honesty and the way that those who test us often make us better.
