IN THE TURN follows Crystal, a 10-yr-old transgender girl, as she navigates growing up in rural Canada. After being denied the right to join athletics due to her gender, Crystal serendipitously discovers the Vagine Regime, an international queer collective of roller derby players comprised of people of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds and identities. The Vagine Regime not only accepts Crystal, but actively supports her journey. IN THE TURN weaves Crystal’s story into the broader narrative of the evolution of roller derby from a niche sport into a social movement with strong roots in the LGBTQ community.
