This -- really interesting movie it's sort of like as somebody who has has been working there you know what off.
Greatness in -- career and making sacrifices all along the way and leaving people under way just sort of has that kind of an epiphany.
Actually -- -- it's a -- about what happens in -- when your Beijing doesn't work out whatever that may be in this woman's case is about a woman who spent her whole life training for the Olympics.
But -- -- at number one alternate so ultimately she ends up sitting on the sidelines and it's about how she was born from.
From that setback for what was it that -- idea to write this you know on the road with in college was the number one alternate for the Sydney Olympics.
And I remember thinking at the time that that's a huge accomplishment that's fantastic.
This would be great -- though because no one ever talks about that in sports so they always win that big racer whenever they're in right away so what happens to this person she she -- -- and her monthly get a job.
Because she's turning thirty.
And -- she becomes a coach Carroll high school which for her.
-- a little bit degrading do you think she's this little in the end but she learns to -- life and -- falls in love with coaching it's not about -- fame and power and no I don't expect things about the simple things in life at stake now is -- to make a lucky.
Yeah and that she's very -- familiar personality doesn't he he's fantastic he's really funny enough a lot of people know that life.
Did you know of these videos -- found -- yeah I mean he's he's young he's very funny.
But what was it about you that you decided to sort of move away from having you are starring his phone and then -- sort of move away from just dot focus and outing in all these other things to it.
I think it was that I really wanted to tell this story I wanted to tell and mainstream sports -- with a little bit of a different story line out there that really inspired me to go do it myself because.
You know I really wanted to get it done I want to be good example for young female athletes out there where we gonna see this movie.

You -- a lot of luck when you're young.
No you know I didn't start professional acting until after drama school it's really hard any -- we'll tell you -- after it's a -- of rejection it's it's kind of like picking yourself up then and keep going but up.
I've always want to do this since I was like five some a little stubborn and I told my parents going to be theater -- they're like great train.
It can't you see similarities between yourself and the character I didn't look like they absolutely I think.
In everyone's life there's a big dream and an acting as a good example you may wanna be in the Hollywood blockbuster but you're in -- at whatever it may be everybody dreams for something that they may or may not hit.
