Celebrate girl power with this uplifting British sports drama that taps into the excitement surrounding the 2012 London Olympics. Set in the tough world of athletics, it’s an inspirational triumph-through-adversity tale about a feisty female sprint relay team fighting to win gold for the UK. But their on-the-track struggles are intensified by bitter rivalry between two of the squad members: working-class talent Shania and snooty rich kid Lisa. Public humiliations, heartache and disaster follow as the clashing pair find their personal grievances impacting on the whole team. With the biggest race of their lives approaching, can the Fast Girls finally pull together, or will Shania and Lisa’s squabbles destroy everyone’s chance of glory?
