Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Netflix's doc Sisters on Track, direct from YouTube:
Sisters on Track chronicles the coming-of-age story of the Sheppard sisters: Tai, Rainn, and Brooke who were propelled into the national spotlight in 2016 with their first-time wins at the Junior Olympics. The resulting media storm landed the trio on the cover of Sports Illustrated Kids as “SportsKids of the Year" and they were able to move from shelters into their own home. The doc film offers a rare intimate glimpse into a tight-knit Brooklyn family’s journey to recover from trauma and tragedy. With the support of their mother, Tonia Handy, and the guidance of coach Jean Bell, the Sheppard sisters aim to beat the odds, dream big and aspire to higher education as they are finding their voices as athletes and students – all while processing the growing pains of adolescence. At the heart of the story is the bond between sisters and an entire community of women, passing the baton of self-empowerment and hope through track and field, from one generation to another. Sisters on Track is co-directed by the filmmakers Corinne van der Borch (director of Girl with Black Balloons) & Tone Grøttjord-Glenne (doc producer, and director of Prirechnyy and All That I Am). Netflix will debut Sisters on Track streaming starting June 24th this year.
