“Call it “Hoop Dreams” for the social media generation”

At an all-girls' school in an under-privileged area of downtown Baltimore, the faculty are on a mission to have every one of their senior class accepted to, and graduate from, college. Step follows three students navigating their final year while competing in the Lethal Ladies Step Team, and striving to be the first members of their families to attend college.

Amanda Lipitz's directorial debut is equal parts emotionally moving and stomp-on-your-seat entertaining. Step was awarded the Special Jury Prize at the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
