In Lola Quiroran’s debut feature, Julie Ledru lights up the screen as Julia, a fierce and fearless young woman who steals motorcycles and installs herself as an invaluable member of an urban rodeo gang. Julie is quickly swept into the drama and excitement of underground world of motorcycle rodeos, but can she hold her own in this unpredictable, misogynistic scene?
Quiroran’s gritty, close-up style elevates the tension of the high-stakes motorcycle stunts and underscores Julia’s precarious status as a young woman trying to prove herself within this volatile environment.
