Olympia (narrative)

Synopsis

McKenzie Chinn stars as a struggling artist navigating work and romance in the Windy City. When her boyfriend asks her to drop everything–including a hospital-bound mother–to move cross-country for a new job opportunity, she soon discovers that her biggest obstacle may be herself. Featuring quirky animation and a revelatory central performance, Olympia is a heartfelt story for anyone who’s ever felt adrift on the rough seas of adulthood. The film premiered in competition at the long-lived Los Angeles Film Festival last fall, and follows a young woman’s experience at a critical point on the journey towards her own version of being a grown-up.
