Full Out is based on a true story. It’s an inspiring family film of courage and commitment from a young athlete who was in a car accident.
Here’s the film description:
Based on the true life story of California gymnast Ariana Berlin. As she zoned in on her Olympic goals, 14 year old Ariana Berlin’s (@arianaberlin) life took a sharp turn when she was involved in a debilitating car accident. Gaining her confidence and movement back through learning hip hop dance, she unexpectedly found herself called back to the gymnastics world thanks to world renowned UCLA Coach Valorie Kondos Field (@UCLAMissVal). With Val’s help, Ariana was eventually able to secure a spot on the UCLA gymnastics team and win an NCAA championship, a lifelong goal that she had always dreamed of. This is a wonderfully inspiring story of persistence, confidence, and the heart and courage to make a somewhat impossible comeback in life.
Ariana Berlin is played by Ana Golja. Jennifer Beals plays Coach Field. Also in the film are Sarah Fisher, Jake Epstein, Trevor Tordjman, Robbie Graham Kuntz, Lamar Johnson, Courtney Van Wirdum, Genny Sermonia, Ramona Milano, and Asha Bromfield.
