Tracktown is a winning comedy about an athlete both running to and running from. Plumb is a bright, talented, and lonely long-distance runner, but when her body starts to rebel as she prepares for the Olympic Trials, she must do something she’s never done before: take a day off. Distracted by a young man at the local bakery, frustrated by her inability to keep training, and forced to deal with her overbearing father and estranged mother (brought to life masterfully by Andy Buckley and Rachel Dratch), Plumb is definitely outside of her comfort zone. Co-written and co-directed by real life Olympian Alexi Pappas, who also plays the lead, Tracktown had its premiere in Eugene, Oregon during the 2016 U.S. Olympic trials and screened in competition at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival.
