IN COMPETITIVE FIGURE SKATING, ONLY THE TOUGH SURVIVE 5 AM PRACTICES.
Ballet classes. Tutors. Weight training. Injuries. Dedication to a single cause since the time you could walk. Ice Girls is the story of three elite young figure skaters — Canadian Keyla Ohs and UK skaters Jennifer Holmes and Vikki Hodges as they pursue their dreams of one day ascending the Olympic podium. Shot over three years, Ice Girls paints an intimate portrait of these girls’ lives and their dedication to a sport that demands tremendous physical power and psychological strength.
