Tagline: 17-year-old Claressa ‘T-Rex’ Shields from Flint, Michigan dreams of being the first woman in history to win a gold medal in Olympic boxing. But in order for her to succeed, she’ll need to stand her ground both inside and outside the ring

 

Synopsis: For the first time ever, women’s boxing is included in the 2012 Olympics. Fighting for gold from the U.S. is Claressa “T-Rex” Shields, just 17 years old, and by far the youngest competitor. From the hard knock streets of Flint, Michigan her fierceness extends beyond the ring. She protects her family at any cost, even when their instability and addictions threaten to derail her dream. Claressa does have one stable force in her life. Coach Jason Crutchfield has trained her since she was just a scrawny 11-year-old hanging out at his gym. Her relationships with her coach and her family grow tense as she gets closer to her dream. But Claressa is fierce and determined. She desperately wants to take her family to a better, safer place and winning a gold medal could be her only chance.

Critic Quotes: …a great sports documentary, but also an intimate portrait of a young woman who grew up in a tough environment and found a way to thrive.” Sarah Boslaugh – Playback
