The movie, Jump!, about the sport of competitive jump rope, follows kids on five teams from around the country who push their physical and psychological limits in pursuit of winning the World Championship.
Part extreme sport, part art form, their moves are choreographed and bursting with rhythm, sweat and originality. After arduous drilling and mind-boggling performances, rivalry and collaboration have dramatic unexpected results.
Competitive jump rope has been proposed as a new Olympic sport.
The film was directed by Helen Hood Scheer with editing, writing, and other collaboration by Scott B. Morgan.
